Tablet References in Latest OS Release?

On August 5, 2009

The latest 3.1 beta seems to again reference an unknown product.  The new model number is once again creating rumors about a touchscreen device based on iPhone OS.

It seems that the product distinction this time is 1.1, which Apple has historically used to reference other first gen products.  Apple usually does new iPod releases in September in time for the school season, and this could be the proof that a new product is on its way.

Historically, the original iPhone was tagged as 1,1, and the 3G was 1.2.  The iPod touch was found as 1.1 and 2.1 for the first and second gen versions.  So if history is any indicator, it might seem that Apple once again has something secret planned for us soon.
