Apple Tablet (iSlate?) to be subsidized by media outlets?

Not beyond the realm of current speculation, but a reliable source has indicated that the price of the Apple Tablet is going to be offset via exclusive deals with media outlets, with Sports Illustrated owner Time Warner being named one of the subsidy partners.

No details on how the deal would work, but one could only imagine it is probably along the realm of exclusive publishing rights on the new device, and/or better ad placement and prominence in the iTunes Music Publishing Store.

This should be interesting.  Look for full details to emerge later this month at Apple’s yet-to-be-announced press event circa Jan. 27th.
