Sure the leak if the iphone 4 was some fluke freak accident - and shocking at the same time, but knowing what the iphone 5 looked like a month before the keynote was just down right annoying.

I wish the supply chain would stop leaking images

Well I suppose you could just not read technology forums. Even if Apple were tighter on leaks you'd likely see SOMETHING just by reading MacRumors.

Dude, you are on a RUMOR WEBSITE.
I like the rumor aspect. Rumours are not facts, rumours can be wrong! Rumours can get everyone talking
But when all these FACTS are being leaked it gets a bit old, I miss the guessing and wondering.

There's already a concept online:

http://www.expertreviews.co.uk/table...pad-5-concept-
unveiled

http://www.todaysiphone.com/2013/01/...ezels-gallery/

Same person who done the Iphone 5 mock up which looked genuine.

Looks like it will be nice.

The question is March or October?

Not sure about the residual masking tape.
Probably would've gone for a more industrial binding process.

Seems very un-Apple.

Looks nice!

I love the tape feature!
There must be a good reason why Apple went with paper in stead of electrical

want one already

iPad 3: heavy for long periods, edges are uncomfortable after long periods

anything to mitigate the two above is a sale for me.

Even if these aren't legit, it seems fairly obvious that it will look something like this. I don't think anyone needed a leak to figure that one out.

Like I said, it's hard [for me] to tell. Anyway, that was my first impression of the photos.

Looks incredibly awkward with the icon spacing. The wide spacing of the icons on the full-sized iPad just looks weird with the tiny bezel. Does anyone agree?

Oh well, by the time this comes out we'll probably have iOS 7 and maybe everything will be different

My admittedly poor Photoshopping skills say it will be close but not quite as impressive:

9to5Mac has unconfirmed images of what could be the rear panel for the next iPad.

Update:

In this composite, you see the new iPad is much smaller than the current iPad. The iPad 4 (image) and iPad 5 (image) have been overlaid to show the relative sizes.

I like this a lot, looks like the bezel will be super super thin which is a great upgrade.

Are they going to reduce the price commensurate with the reduction in size?

What is up with all of these leaks? Tim... get a hold of your products and your people. Leave something to the imagination.

My opinion on it is why not move to a 10" screen? Keep the current size still move the bezel?

A smaller Ipad will be smaller than rival tablets. The screen might be the same but some say the bezel makes you feel your holding maybe say a book or newspaper. For me some ereaders are already too small.

Also the current Ipad design is soo old now. Ipad 4 is Ipad 2 but heavier almost.

Ipad mini feels great and anybody who has a 2,3,4 may want to upgrade as Ipad 5 will feel great to hold.

Bad news if it's like Iphone 5 you might want a good case!
