Apple Tablet Rumors Go Down Under

Apple has apparently been showing off the specifications for its rumored tablet device in Australia. The specs were shown to media companies as part of discussions to bring content to the device, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

The latest rumors claimed Apple's tablet will be bigger that the iPhone and iPod touch, but still small enough to fit in a purse, handbag or book bag.

Apple has been rumored to be negotiating with publishers to bring books and magazines to its tablet. New York Times Executive Editor Bill Keller added fuel to the rumors a few days ago when he mentioned an "impending Apple slate" during a presentation.

Despite the growing number of rumors pointing to a tablet device from Apple, the Cupertino-based company hasn't publicly offered any details or confirmation that a product launch is on the way.
