Analyst: Apple Tablet in February, 10.1'' Display

AppleInsider reports that Reiner shared information garnered from supply chain souces with investors yesterday morning. The analyst said Cupertino-based Apple should begin production in Feruary.

"Our checks into Apple's supply chain indicate the manufacturing cogs for the tablet are creaking into action and should begin to hit a mass market stride in February," Reiner said in the note. "At this stage Apple appears to be sizing its supply chain to support production of as many as 1M units per month."

According to AI, Reiner went on to say that the device will utilize a 10.1-inch multi-touch display using the same LTPS LCD technology as the iPhone but specifically disputed earlier reports that claimed Apple had plans for a high-end OLED model.

The supposed OLED model was supposedly the reason that the supposed device's supposed launch had been supposedly delayed into the second half of next year. Supposedly.

    If the manufacturing is already on it's way, then the whole project has at least 1 year under it's belt.
    This whole secrecy thing about a product is kinda childish and stupid IMO. As far as I'm concerned, I onnly care about products that I can research in advance, and maybe, be able to provide some feedback. Some manufacturers actually listen to their potential consumers out there and that only helps the design and the promotion of the product.
    But, again, we are talking about Apple here, with renowned lack of interest of what consumers might actually want or of any feedback for that matter. Their target must be the same as it has been so far, people awed by an apple on the cover that looks cool. "Supposedly"

    Have rejigged things as best I can. Our system has a very tight character restriction for headlines so it can be difficult to fit everything in (this one, for example, started out as, "Study Shows Average American Consumes 34GB of Data Daily" but this had to be cut significantly). It is never my intention to be sensationalist or misleading. I'd hate to think I give that impression.

    Who really wants an ipod touch that can't fit into your pocket, other than the church of Steve Jobs worshippers (aka: homosexuals, metrosexuals, idiots, people with more money than brains---aka idiots)

    I, for one, am completely sick of reading about the seemingly bi-weekly rumors about this stupid tablet. Whoop-dee-f'ing do -- Apple will make an overpriced and closed source piece of hardware that, in reality, is no better than anything else that was out there 2 years before. This damned rumor mill has to stop for a company with < 10% market share that probably 50% of the people visiting this site dislike.
