The Apple event is drawing closer and with it, the rumors surrounding the possible launch of the “iPad”. Apple is supposedly going to launch a touch screen based tablet device at the event, which is being held tomorrow in San Francisco. The touchscreen based tablet device was earlier known as the “iSlate”, but is now being referred to as the “iPad”.
Now fueling the rumors of the iPad, before the event are some leaked pictures of the iPad/iSlate/iWhatever. TechCrunch somehow have managed to get their hands on a couple of nice pictures of the upcoming device. Dustim Curtnis , the UI designer, uploaded these pictures on his posterous. He received these pictures from his friend who is working at Apple. From the picture, it seems that the iPad is more of an entertainment device. The size of the device gives me a feeling that the primary use of the device shall be browsing the web and watching movies. The device is also believed to be running the iPhone OS 4.0, and not Snow Leopard. We had earlier posted some leaked screenshots of the iPhone OS 4.0 as well.
A 36 second commercial of the iPad has also been leaked on Youtube. The video can be a fake one though. The commercial states that the iPad has supposedly been under development since the last 10 years. It also states the iPad will bring a “Revolution in personal computing”.
Here is the video of the commercial –
