Rumors about an upcoming release of Apple’s tablet device have been dime-a-dozen – unfortunately, none has turned out to be true so far.

DigiTimes now reports the following:

Apple reportedly plans to postpone the launch of its tablet PC from an original March launch schedule to the second half of 2010, as the vendor has decided to switch some components and plans to launch a model using a 9.7-inch OLED panel from LG Display, according to sources from component makers.

The sources estimate that Apple’s tablet PC cost will drop to around US$1,200-1,500 by the second half of 2010 with the retail price reaching about US$2,000. The price could be more flexible if bundled with telecom providers’ 3G services. Meanwhile, the 10.6-inch LCD panel-based Apple tablet PC is expected to priced in the US$800-1,000 range.

As always, keeping a large grain of salt in the back of your mind is advocated – stay tuned…
