Gizmodo has received a tip from a source "that has always been 100% reliable" informing them that Apple is working on a 10-inch tablet, and 13" and 15" model as well.

This source claims that the two touchscreen prototypes—made of aluminum, but on the shape of big iPhones—were in a factory in Shenzuen, China. One of them "was running Mac OS X 10.5."

Number 1 I am so sick of hearing all these rumors about the Apple Tablet.... 2ndly If Apple puts the iPhone OS on the Tablet I will lose all respect for them! As great as OS X 10.6 is it would be stupid to throw the crappy iPhone OS on it!

It would be stupid of Apple to put the iPhone OS on the tablet instead of the full Mac OSX.
