Apple Tablet - Unofficial, unannounced ... but still delayed

It hasn't been announced it yet, heck, there's not even any official confirmation of its existence yet, but that doesn't stop rampant speculation that the Apple's tablet PC has been delayed until the second half of 2010.

It hasn't been announced it yet, heck, there's not even any official confirmation of its existence yet, but that doesn't stop rampant speculation that the Apple's tablet PC has been delayed until the second half of 2010.

DigiTimes has the info:

"Apple reportedly plans to postpone the launch of its tablet PC from an original March launch schedule to the second half of 2010, as the vendor has decided to switch some components and plans to launch a model using a 9.7-inch OLED panel from LG Display, according to sources from component makers."

Bottom line, parts will be cheaper come H2 '10, which makes sense but then again I don't see why Apple would "delay" a tablet because of this, given that it's pretty apparent (especially to a big OEM like Apple) that components get cheaper over time. That's just common sense.

Should we take reports that a rumored product has been delayed seriously?
