I generally avoid the Apple rumor mill, but this one looks real. Here's why I say this: the Financial Times also avoids the rumor mill...and they are siting multiple sources from different industries who are working on related licensing deals. http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/28129982-7a18-11de-b86f-00144feabdc0.html?nclick_check=1
While the article reports an approximately 10" diagonal display, it is likely to be slightly smaller to enhance usability...about 9", in keeping with last year's report of a major display order.
This would make the device approximately 5" x 7.5". I think this is a great idea, because it allows:
- intense interaction at the edges of the device the device
- leaves the central area free for content
- and the whole device can still be touched when held in a position like the one below.
