Apple touting Tablet in Australia?

The Apple Tablet rumors this week have already been tenuous and, well, more tenuous, so let's throw another vaguely unbelievable tidbit into the ring.  According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Apple have been shopping around their tablet to Australian media companies, "in an effort to sound out whether they would be interested in delivering their content to the tablet."  The paper suggests that Apple have been sending around details of the tablet's specifications; however none of the media companies themselves would talk on the record.

As for the device itself, details are scant and basically rehash what we've already heard: that it will be bigger than an iPhone, media- and ebook-centric, and be "small enough to carry in a handbag but too big to fit in a pocket."  Recent speculation has again pinned production on Foxconn, with rumors generally circulating around a February 2010 launch.  Right now though, the only thing we know for sure is that nowhere is safe from an Apple rumor.
