    Supposedly someone had snapped a photo of the front glass of the new Apple iSlate. Here is the photo:

    Well, looks pretty real right? All thanks to my lovely math I found the height. The home button of an iPhone is .9cm in diameter. Using MSPaint, I copied and pasted the button until I ran out of room on the face of the glass, shown here:

    There were 22 buttons that could be pasted on the glass. So now that I know that an iPhone home button is .9cm in diameter, I multiplied by 22 to get 19.8 cm, which is equal to 7.8 inches. Repeating this, I got 4.08 inches for the width. Now, with all the 10 inch Apple tablet rumors floating around, I'm not exactly sure you can fit a 10 inch screen on a 7.8 in x 4.08 in device. Maybe the screen will be smaller than 10 inches? What do you guys think?

    Update: For all we know, the home button could be smaller, thus making the device bigger. These are estimates, not exact!

    Looks fake. I doubt they would need a hole for a proximity sensor cut out on the top.

    Uhm, when they measure screen size, they do it by the square root of the area of the screen. So they measure it diagonally, from corner to corner, not from one end to another.

    why would you need an earpiece up top? its supposed to be a tablet and not a phone.. it would look ridiculous calling from a phone 8 inches long..
