Tablet to Run iPhone OS, Launch in May or June?

iLounge is reporting that they have received several tips regarding Apple’s rumored tablet from the same source that tipped them of about the fifth-generation iPod nano. The source goes on to claim that the device will run iPhone OS, and not Mac OS X. Additionally, the device will have a 10.7 inch screen, and a resolution of about 720p. Lastly, this device, according to the source, will be announced on or before January 19th, 2010, and will ship by May or June.

The report further suggests that the device will be ascetically similar to the iPhone, and will come in two variants, one with 3G cellular capabilities, and one without. Furthermore, the device is not targeted for the ‘netbook’ market, and will feature substantial book and magazine reading abilities, and other enhancements that set this device apart from the iPhone.

To finish up, the report claims this device has not yet been finalized, and work on the device is at the 80% completion mark.
