Given the secrecy surrounding new products that Apple is known for, I'm not surprised that so many false reports "leaked" about the Tablet. Late this year, we heard some more news that Apple was shopping the tablet to would-be Australian developers to gauge interest in the device, and that it would feature a 9.6-inch touch screen and retail between $799 and $999. It's even had a couple of different names — we've heard it referred to as the Tablet, Slate, and iPad, but still no word from Apple.
As an admitted Apple fan, I want to be excited about the news. But after hearing conflicting, secretive, and cryptic reports for months, it's hard to get too excited. Then this morning, news began breaking from a few sources about a January demo for a seven-inch tablet. Could we be seeing the Apple Tablet at this year's CES?
