All has been quiet on the Apple tablet rumor front since the company introduced its new iPod lineup a week ago, but now a new report reveals components information for the expected device.

The Apple tablet will have a 9.6-inch screen, "finger-touch function" and build-in HSPDA, according to a report by the Taiwan Economic News on Tuesday.

HSPDA would indicate AT&T and T-Mobile potential, even though the tablet's been rumored in the past to appear on Verizon.

300,000 units per month are expected to be built, according to information from battery supplier Dynapro. Wintek, which builds touch panels for the iPhone, is still expected to supply them for the tablet.

Inside, a P.A. SEMI processor chip and "long lasting" battery pack are to be found. The tablet is expected to sell between $799 and $999 USD.
