iTablet suppliers named

Further proof of Apple's inbound 10in tablet PC?

Security for virtualized datacentres

Some of the firms tasked with supplying parts for Apple’s rumoured tablet PC have been named.

Industry sources reportedly told Taiwanese website Apple Daily that Wintek Corp will supply the tablet’s touch-sensitive display, which it’s widely believed will measure 10in.

The Dynapack International Technology Corp will provide the batteries for each Apple tablet, it also was reported.

The tablet PC – often nicknamed the iTablet – will, of course, only sport Apple branding. But the industry sources also claimed that Hon Hai Precision Industry Co has been selected as the firm tasked with screwing each iTablet together.

Hon Hai Precision Industry Co is more commonly known as Foxconn – a firm that’s already worked with Apple to produce the iPhone, various iPod models and the Mac mini.

Apple’s yet to confirm official plans for a tablet PC and, if its previous products announcements are anything to go by, confirmation will only come on the day the firm unveils the iTablet.

Nonetheless, it was reported yesterday that Apple’s planning to launch the iTablet this September. A potential price hasn’t been leaked. ®
