Two new tablet rumors reported by Digitimes: 1) Google (GOOG) will follow up on the launch of the Nexus 7 tablet by introducing a 10" model that uses touch panels from AU Optronics (AUO) and Wintek (this sounds believable, particularly given the Nexus 7's name). 2) A Chinese-language site claims Apple (AAPL) will introduce a new 9.7" iPad in summer that will be thinner and feature better battery life than the latest iPad (harder to believe, given the historical pace of iOS product launches).
