Although this is not a concept, we can’t afford not to drool all over these fresh leaked pics of the upcoming Apple Tablet. Turns out that the product might not be called the iSlate after all, but rather the iPad, as shown by a couple of trademarks filed by Apple over the last years.

The photos right here seem genuine, specially since Mr. Blurrycam doesn’t usually show fake stuff. As you can see, the photos show the glass display on the device, placed on top of a MacBook keyboard, in order to avoid speculations saying that this is in fact an oversized iPhone display.

Does this look like the device we’ve seen so many times as a concept on this site?

    I can’t help but wonder why there would be a place for a speaker at the top of the device (just like the iPhone faceplate) Still will not believe the images until there is cold hard proof.

  • August 28, 2009 Apple filed for patents on a new type of keyboard. This keyboard is a multi-touch keyboard with tactile feedback for users.

    “The invention is credited to Wayne Carl Westerman of San Francisco, Calif. The described invention would include drive electronics that stimulate the multi-touch sensor and sensing circuits for reading the sensor in a single integrated package.” -Apple Insider

    This patent suggests that our predictions are correct. The supposed “iSlate” will not be a tablet but a clam shell notebook computer with multiple touch interfaces. One of these interfaces will include a dynamic tactile keyboard.
