This one looks a bit shaky.  AppleInsider is saying that the tablet, which will be revealed next week, resembles a first generation iPhone.  Reuters reported previously that the shell of the tablet would be made of aluminum.  AppleInsider expands on this saying that the buttons and I/O on the device are the same as the iPhone.

 …tablet reportedly sports all of the same buttons found on the handset, right down to the iconic home button…its 10-inch display is framed by a black border that bleeds into its wrap-around aluminum enclosure.

Could that mean that MacObserver‘s ‘giant iPhone’ glass parts were the real deal?  Color us skeptical.
