WSJ: Apple tablet shipping in March

Sources tell the Journal that the 10- to 11-inch device from Apple will ship to customers at least a month after its announcement later this month.

While many have been fixated on when Apple will announce a new tablet product, The Wall Street Journal says it has found out when the device will actually be available to customers.

Sources have told the Journal that a 10- or 11-inch touch-screen tablet computer will begin shipping in March. Another source says that there are at least two different finishes for the device that Apple is either still deciding on or perhaps planning to charge different prices for each.

Though there's been a lot of speculation about the tablet, there are no confirmed details yet. Industry observers are anticipating a late January announcement (January 27, according to AllThingsD ) of a slate-style computer that could be used as a touch-screen e-reader and video display with wireless access for around $1,000.
