Cool, and if so I'll be the first to congratulate you. I, (like many others) suspect that this tablet will run a device specific implementation of the iPhone OS. I have no idea what they'll call it, but I reckon it won't include "X."
I think that because, as I've talked about elsewhere, I believe Apple intends this device to be a ground up rethink of a "personal computer", one that largely abandons desktop OS X's UI metaphors for a new kind of information appliance, single app at a time, the-device-becomes- what-you're-doing-with-it-at-the-moment approach.
It's funny, because all the information we need is right there on the iPhone, hiding in plain sight. It's just that people can't get past the idea that the iPhone OS is a "lesser" OS because it was tailored to a hardware constrained device. Take those same ideas and apply them to a much more capable device, and I think you get something really startling.
