Evidence that Apple’s New Tablet Will Be Called iSlate

Although it’s not much to go by, if you look at the registrars for the possible names “iTablet” and “iSlate” only iSlate uses the same registrar as the other Apple .  I guess we’ll find out next week.  Markmonitor’s header reads “Brand Protection, Domain Management, Anti Fraud Solutions”.   Sounds like something Apple would be interested in.
