When the images above and below were originally leaked out of Taiwanese site Apple.pro, many were speculating that it was some sort of Nano iDevice- possibly a new iPhone or iPod Nano. However, a tipster through our friends at 9to5mac has informed us that this device looks to be some kind of touchpad for Macs, saying the device appears to be a “Touchpad with display for MacBook Pro. bottom connector is exactly what touch pad has. Connector on a side seems like display data.”
The device itself is a mere 1.18 inches by 1.18 inches (3 cm) squared. Engadget notes the site has been responsible for a number of other leaks including the unibody MacBook Pro enclosure, and white iPhone 4, so this is more than likely the real deal. There are even some Apple markings on the device shown in the image below.
