I know, another tablet rumour, but this one sounds plausible. Taiwan Economic News reports its "industry sources" say the device will have a 9.6-inch touchscreen, HSPDA, a P.A SEMI processor, "long lasting battery" and a price between $US800 and $US1000.
The report even breaks down which Taiwanese component manufacturers it believes will handle production. They include current iPhone screen-maker, Wintek (display), and Dynapack (up to 300,000 batteries a month). The report says the supply chain is expected to start delivery to Apple in December.
