iTablet Leak or Assumptive Speak? New York Times Executive Editor Says "Apple Slate"

Bill Keller, Executive Editor of the New York Times, when discussing the evolution/revolution underway in the print media industry, mentioned off-the-record and in passing:

"I'm hoping we can get the newsroom more actively involved in the challenge of delivering our best journalism in the form of Times Reader, iPhone apps, WAP, or the impending Apple slate..."

And so the question becomes, was this an unintentional leak based upon content discussions the NYT has been having with Apple, or is Keller -- like all of us -- just so inculcated with speculation about the near-mythic Apple iTablet that he -- like all of us -- speaks as though it's inevitable?
