Purported tablet images appear ahead of event

Updated

A handful of new photos purportedly showing Apple’s upcoming tablet have been published online. Engadget reports that it received the images from an anonymous source; the images show a tablet-sized device bolted inside some sort of testing frame, with a home button at the bottom of the tablet when held vertically, what appears to be a dock connector port directly below that more holes to its right, another set of holes on the left-hand side of the device, which would be the bottom when turned for horizontal use, and, in a couple of the images, a large-screen version of maps running on the screen. A fourth image shows an iPhone resting on top of the screen to provide scale. We have included one of the images below for those readers who’d like to stay clear of any spoilers prior to Apple’s announcement; click through to Engadget for the rest.
