It's hard to confirm the validity of these images to begin with. Even harder is to find the original source. Once it gets around the internet, it's pretty tough. That said, take this one with a grain of salt. The Images above show what is allegedly a leaked image of a new Apple slate (though we wonder why the internet hasn't exploded with coverage like it did when the iPhone 4 was discovered).
So, assuming this is a real image, the date on the screen is February 9th. One day before the Verizon iPhone is released?
It's worth noting that in the past, promotional photos for Apple devices always have a date that matches their announcement date. Still, those photos have us questioning their authenticity. Someone out there with some basic Photoshop skills is probably giggling as this image moves around the internet.
