Rumor Has It: Jobs Fired Up For Tablet

Following rumors that Apple will make a tablet-related announcement in late January, word is that company head Steve Jobs is thrilled with the forthcoming device. Apple is said to have trademarked the name "iSlate," but that doesn't mean it's 100% guaranteed to be the tablet's real name, writes Fast Company, noting that Slate Computing -- which it links to Apple -- also filed for the name "Magic Slate," "which chimes nicely with the naming scheme started by the recent Apple Magic Mouse."

It's also looking more likely that the tablet's screen size will be 10-inches rather than 7-inches, while other rumors are suggesting Apple contractor Foxconn has been working on strengthening the glass, which will be important on a bigger screen tablet-format device. There's also the possibility, however, that Apple could release the tablet in two sizes.
