Apple Tablet mass production in February claims analyst; serious Kindle rival in the making?

With no official nod from its supposed creators, the Apple Tablet is still the pinnacle of rumorware right now, but that doesn't stop analysts from making mass production predictions.  Oppenheimer's Yair Reiner has cited "checks into Apple's supply chain" as providing sufficient evidence that the company is preparing to kick off production in February of a 10.1-inch multitouch LCD based tablet, as well as unnamed contacts who claim the Cupertino company has been approaching book publishers with "a very attractive proposal for distributing their content".

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.
