Yet Another "Leaked" Apple iTablet "Image"

Yet another iTablet image

Yet another "leaked" Apple iTablet "image".

There's no way Steve Jobs lets the home button cut across the bezel like that, right?

Wayne says:

That looks pretty real to me. I recognize that image upon the initial boot up of OS X...

iAnyhow says:

Fake. Steve will never sell such product. It ruins their reputation.

c says:

Thats just an iPod Touch.

quikDC says:

Obviously fake. Why even post this?

Al says:

That's ugly. Has to be fake.

Jellotime91 says:

I like it. It doesn't actually look that fake when you think about it.. :P

WatersWest says:

If TiPB hasn't been contacted by Apple, demanding it be taken down, then I say fake!

nick says:

yeah i vote that it's fake . . . no camera at the top either.
its ugly too . . . . .

sting7k says:

Chinese knock off. Do they have no shame?

Poop Smells Good says:

This pic stinks as bad as my poop does early in the morning. Has even one of these so called "leaked" images turned out to be true??

PSM says:

Without even zooming in, I can tell there's a square around the button that looks totally 'shopped.

Blake says:

Hopefully this thing is fake. It looks as though it has a chrome back like an iPod Touch. I can't handle another scratch prone Apple device that I have to spend another $50 on a case for. I want it to be aluminum like the Macbooks an the first gen iPhone. That would be worth buying. But if it has a chrome back, i dont care if this thing had a terabyte of storage and Snow Leopard I still wouldn't buy it.

Joi says:

@Poop.... The only 'leaked' pics that i saw come true were the pics leaked by the guy from Digg on the new ipod nano. Everyone said that would be a fake but it turned out to be a true pic of the new nano before apple showed it on the keynote.
PS: I think this pic is clearly a fake in my opinion

Scaliasphone says:

Home button within the bezel? Fake, dude, fake.


I can't wait till the real itablet comes out

jonar1us says:

very would it doesn't even have a drop date yet!!!

Colby says:

that looks just like an iPod Touch 1st gen... fake...

Al says:

Obviously Apple wouldn't demand this picture be taken down. That would essentially confirm its veracity plus, Apple has better things to do than check a bunch of blogs everyday to see if any leaks are out. These things always make me wonder though, it boggles my mind that someone could have a great job at Apple and put that in jeopardy for some petty leaked photos, that's of course assuming that they are real.

Truth says:

Looks like they stretched a Itough wide in photoshop.

henrymagnusrex says:

I don't even think he screen is square with the bezel...and the whole "welcome" thing...just no...

Chobbs1 says:

The suare around the home button is a dead give away. Totally FAKE!

Ivoryplum says:

Look at the screen placement. All off-center like that.
It looks hideous.
I think it's possible that the "home" button will be at the bottom, instead of the side. But it won't be placed like that.

Wesley says:

In my opinion the problem is the lack of symmetry between the top area and the button area, which exists even on the iPod Touch, and it doesn't have anything there (besides the light sensor that could be somewhere else).

MJ says:

Why even post this crap? What a waste of our time. I can tell this is fake from the view on my phone.
Stop compromising the credibility of a decent site with garbage like this. Seriously.

icebike says:

Everyone who posts that this is ugly please bookmark this page so you will be able to find your way back and eat crow after this product is released.

Truth says:

You seem to eat crow everyday. By my count you have eaten 3,568,759, 452 crows to date.

Mathias says:

@Greg You do know that's the initial startup "intro" in Leopard, right? Everything else screams fake, but everyone who's started up a mac after a fresh install of Leopard has seen that clip, so you might not want to say that that's what looks fake to you.

Jersagfast says: Not even close.

icebike says:


Look at the screen placement. All off-center like that. It looks hideous.

Oh, come on. Hideous? Are you serious. Because Apple might choose to use the available space wisely you pronounce it hideous?
The back of the iPhone must REALLY turn your stomach!! The Horror! An unbalanced off center camera!!

frog says:

Doesn't look too bad, doubt it's real though. Really hope it's not just an oversized iPhone though - if it can't run iTunes ; I'll be giving it a miss.

fastlane says:

I refuse to even comment on this...
:x D'oh!!

Clay says:

If you want the "iTablet" check out Axiotron, they are on board with Wozniak and have made it.

Thumper-uk says:

The quality of apple products have gone down hill like steves health , exploding iphones and ipod touches , melting 3gs and cracking white macs the list goes on . I hope apple improve the quality of thier products as the image they are getting is not good , hope now steves back he kicks the board in the ass to get apple back on track . As for the photo i dont know if its real or fake we will have to wait till september

Daje says:

That's soo ugly. I like the gizmodo itablet.

David says:

Hey I'm new to this site. So does anyone mind telling me wth I'm looking at lol.
...but I must admit it doe look a tad bit fake but real w/e the hell it is

Press says:

Look at the scale of the damn thing. If it was 13inch screen the flip'n Home button would be the size of your thumbnail. This is totally fake

The TUG says:

Definately a fake, but one of the better ones... There is a full list of fakes here, and this one is quite possibly the most 'realistic' concept...?

Andy says:

Turns out lots of leaked photos have turned out to be correct regardless of how bad they looked.

Andy says:

Hmmm, the link didn't come out very well. There should be an underscore between each word after the last slash.

TyCo says:

If this is real I don't think it will be "wacom gray" especially since it is a tablet itself

Slowb says:

Whoever made picture this didn't spend much time making it look believable.
The screen isn't lined up with the border at all. It sits crooked, and the button is a poorly pasted overlay. Zoom in and look at the square around the button. A whole square of pixelated copy/paste of different resulitions.
