Boy Genius Report is making claims on information they have received from a source regarding the forthcoming Apple Tablet, claiming that it is an “iPhone on steroids”. Here are some of the details divulged:

– The tablet’s multi-touch gestures are “out of control.”

– It’s powered by an incredibly fast ARM CPU

– It runs on the iPhone kernel.

– The internal model number is K48AP.

– The tablet is basically an “iPhone on steroids.”

This is the first report to refer to the tablet’s model number, that being K48AP. They also claim the next iPhone will carry the model number, N90AP, whereas the current iPhone 3GS carries the N88AP model number.
