According to the Wall Street Journal,
the device will cost $1,000, feature a “10 to 11-inch touch screen” and

“iSlate.co.uk” is also owned by MarkMonitor and with the UK being a key
market in Apple’s portfolio, it would make sense to cover its
bases in this way. In addition, iSlate.jp (Japan), iSlate.cn (China)
and iSlate.fr (France), further key markets for Apple, have also been
linked to MarkMonitor, and this seems like too much of a coincidence to
presume that a large company wasn’t involved in scooping up the most
profitable world markets.
