Apple Tablets delayed ’til 2H 2010, OLED & LCD versions planned?

The perennial Apple Tablet rumor gets another kink in the tale today, with gossip-gluttons DigiTimes reporting that the company has pushed back the predicted early-2010 launch - which they peg as March - into the second half of the year.  They're also quoting component manufacturers who tip not one but two Apple Tablets with similarly sized displays: a 10.6-inch LCD TFT and a 9.7-inch OLED version, the latter likely being supplied by LG Display as part of their ongoing five-year $500m panel deal.

Apple tablet SIM-tray spotted for sale; Foxconn tipped as manufacturer (again)

Now the SlashGear team love tech in all its myriad forms, but even we'd have trouble mustering too much enthusiasm for a SIM tray.  However, we'll make a semi-exception for a tray tipped to slot into Apple's fourth-gen iPhone or "iTablet"; according to ChinaOnTrade, this part - which they claim to have directly sourced from Foxconn, already fingered as a potential Apple Tablet manufacturer - will go on sale October 23rd for $14.05.
