is reporting that a "source" inside Apple has confirmed to the publication that Apple will hold a "big" event in January, in what is widely expected to be the official launch of the Apple Tablet, currently rumoured to be called the iSlate.

"While nothing official has been handed down from the notoriously tight-lipped company, my source took the Financial Times report one step further by saying this event will focus on the mobility space, meaning we'll see something related to the iPhone/Touch product line," reports Clayton Morris in the article.

Rumours for the much talked about Apple Tablet have been growing steadily over the couple of months with many experts believing 2010 will be the year Apple finally announces a device.

Trademark listings, domain name registrations and other details are currently suggesting the tablet device that is expected to look and work like a giant iPhone will be called the iSlate.

We will keep you posted.
