iPad Air 2 leak claim could see Apple tablet even thinner

Apple's new iPad Air 2 has purportedly been leaked, or the display and touchscreen section at least, with a new set of photos of the second-gen full-sized iOS tablet seemingly indicating a change of construction approach that could help it be thinner. The new Air - which, if Apple sticks to routine, we could expect to see sometime around October 2014 - appears to integrate its layers rather than have them separate.

Apple tablet marketshare dips as Android accelerates

Apple still dominates the consumer tablet market but is seeing the iPad's lead gradually eroded by Android models, according to new research, with slates running the Google OS grabbing almost 40-percent of the worldwide market share in Q4 2011. 26.8m tablets were shipped in Q4 2011, Strategy Analytics claims, contributing a greater-than-average amount to whole-year shipments of 66.9m units; Apple held 57.6-percent of the Q4 2011 market, down from 68.2-percent in the same period back in 2010.

Apple tablet casing leaks?

There's a little over an hour until Apple's Steve Jobs takes to the stage to - we're presuming - announce the new Apple tablet, but to tide you over how about some purported leaked images of the slate's casing.  Briefly showing up on a Chinese messageboard, and then promptly deleted, these shots show an indecently thin chassis together with several cut-outs and notches presumably for charging, buttons and headphones.

With the Apple event kicking off in a matter of hours and - all things expected - the iPad tablet issue finally put to rest, do we have time for a few more quick rumors?  Jason Calacanis, a guy with a pretty solid tech reputation, has been tweeting about his hands-on experience as an Apple tablet beta-tester; Calacanis claims to have been playing with the tablet for two weeks now, that it has an integrated HDTV tuner and PVR, wireless keyboard and monitor connectivity, front and rear camera functionality and integrated 3G with support for both Verizon and AT&T.  Unfortunately there's also a sting in the tail: the apparent battery life of the tablet.

Breaking news:  real Apple Tablet revealed?

No confirmations yet, but two highly attention-grabbing images of what seems to be a prototype Apple tablet have just been released a few minutes ago, or what looks like the tablet enclosed in a leather case with snaps.  It looks fairly good-sized, and from further inspection, is clearly running some variant of an iPhone app or maybe the Safari browser, but of highly-scaled resolution.  A cellular service icon (that shouts "No Service") and Wi-Fi meter can also be spotted in the pictures, but unfortunately we can’t yet see what carrier it’s on, drat.  So is it real?  We don't know yet, but it very much could be the real deal.

Apple Tablet in CDMA and GSM flavors for both Verizon & AT&T?

Apple Tablet in CDMA and GSM flavors for both Verizon & AT&T?

Carrier support for the much-rumored Apple Tablet has been well argued over the past few months, with some sources tipping AT&T - with whom Apple already work with on the iPhone 3GS - and others pointing at Verizon Wireless.  According to Fox, however, both carriers may be in line for a version; they claim that Apple is still to complete negotiations, and say that internal sources have confirmed that both a CDMA and a GSM model of the Apple Tablet will be launched.
