This is just part of Apple's marketing machine bellowing the coals in preparation of the launch. They knew full well their actions would feed the rumour mill and get more people talking about it, ensuring huge anticipation by the time it arrives - to a press frenzy. Expect any iSlate to be on the front page of the BBC news website and reported on the 6 and 9 O'Clock news.
Seriously... This is the main BBC News bulletin... Earthquake in Haiti, Obama follows Brown by imposing big taxes on banks, Teddy Pendergrass has died... and Apple, the computer company who have been making computers since the 70s, have made a computer. It looks like a big iPhone but is a proper computer instead, with high failure rates due to too many dum-dums crushing them.
Like iFlavor iFlav used to say before reaching his 50s, Don't believe the hype, fanBooooyyyy!
