Did a Chinese blogger leak the next Apple tablet?


Well ahead of today's expected launch of the latest iPad, one Chinese tech blog claims to already know what it looks like.

Over the weekend, Hong Kong-based MIC Gadget released this video of what it says are authentic supplier parts of the new Apple device. The blog's 21-year-old founder Chris Chang says the components reveal a bigger camera, thicker case and more tapered edges for the next-generation tablet.

But how did a young Chinese blogger apparently scoop Apple with an early exposé of the new tablet?

Chang tells me he scored the alleged leak by working his supplier contacts in Shenzhen, China.
