Report: Apple Tablet Slated For Aluminium Casing And Q2 Launch

Reuters today has cited unnamed sources that Apple's supply chain will begin manufacturing aluminium casings for their upcoming tablet device next month. That means a shipment could come as early as Q2.

Taiwanese manufacturer AVY Precision Technology, Inc has been tapped to provide the cases, while Wintek Corp and TPK Solutions will supply the panels for tablet, according to Reuters. This backs up the WSJ's report on Monday that the Apple tablet will ship in March and the rumoured January 27th announcement.

With major announcements like this, you can generally expect leaks and rumours like this with increasing frequency - that is, until the Apple gestapo has their way. [Reuters via MacRumors]
