Rumor: Apple’s Tablet Is an “iPhone on Steroids”

Illustration for article titled Rumor: Apple’s Tablet Is an “iPhone on Steroids”

One of our close Apple connects who haven't steered us wrong dropped a little bit of information on us. Here's what we know:

• 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.
• There hasn't been an updated iPhone OS build because there's too much tablet-related code/references in the OS and Apple obviously didn't want that to leak. Oops.
• The tablet is basically an "iPhone on steroids."

What exactly is an "incredibly fast ARM CPU" Anyone know what the fastest clock speed on an ARM is right now? I've heard that the Cortex A8 can hit 1GHZ but thats the fastest I've heard.
