“Market sources” at DigiTimes note that the device is expected to go on sale in the first quarter of 2010, with an initial shipment of 300,000 to 400,000 devices. The Apple tablet is expected to have a 10.6-inch display based on speculation that Foxconn could easily source the panels from its subsidiary Innolux Display.

DigiTimes' sources believe that the Apple tablet will focus more on e-book functionality rather than music, and that "based on Apple's marketing strategy, long battery life, quick Internet connectivity and an easy-to-use user interface will be key features of the device."
