Has anyone else seen the photo from an interview of nvidia's ceo? Looks a lot like what Apple might be coming out with Wink

I think Apples tablet will be very 'Apple like' (if ever made of course) - to me, that device shown is not an Apple device.

I think this could be a prototype for the Apple Tablet. Looks a lot like an iPhone/iPodtouch home button on one edge and an isight on the other. Same rounded corners as the iPhone, all its really missing is the chrome edging. Some people think it will end up being just a larger iPhone, but it makes sense to me to have the home button where it is on this device, since most of the time you would have this in landscape mode anyway.

Keep in mind, prototypes aren't always the finished product, the first versions of the macbook were just intel parts shoved into a PowerBook if I recall correctly.

I hope the tablet has a video in port so you can use it as a portable monitor for the Mac Mini, like they did with the new iMac. That would be really cool.
