I'm going with August instead of October.
In fact it wouldn't surprise me if it stays on August for a while.
Back to school + Christmas = **** ton of iPads getting sold

All of the design updates for the iPad have been mainly trivial since they only changed the back and the majority of the users put on cases. They were good because it was great to see the change at the store and made people want to buy the product but this is really the first true update if it's real. It will change the back, the front and even the way user holds it. It's exciting. The next step should be, as many have mentioned, an updated look for iOS. I hope they are working on it... hard.

Which I dont mind because I like what ever apple releases.
Why it would only slow sales of Ipad 4 and mean less profit?

Finally. Have always felt the bezel on the iPad was way too large.

Also, it seems thinner? Will it be the same weight due to battery density?

That looks quite a dramatic reduction in size (and possibly weight).

It's not the same. I'd like to agree with you, but the white bezel is annoying. I've been using black bezels in iToys and other devices since always and thats's not going to change.

What kind of guarantee do you offer? How can you know for sure what Apple is going to do with it?

agree, the aluminum with ipads is nicer tho
More pixels, but a Pentile display. Which means every single pixel has only two subpixels, allowing only 65536 colours out of a very limited colour range. On a Pentile display, it is actually physically impossible to have a black screen showing a single white pixel - you need two pixels side by side to make them look white.

Cool, seems like we'll be getting a new iPad in march/april after all
If they just do the same as with the iPhone 5, this can be done without Sharps IZGO; just make the aluminum a bit thinner and use the same screen technology as the iPhone (so thinner as well).

If they could reduce the iPhone's weight by 20% while making the screen larger and keeping the batteryr life, maybe the new iPad will weigh 500 grams instead of 652. With the iPad Mini at 308 that's still a big enough difference between them.

Looks great. I hope they increase the screen size to 10.1" and add a 128GB version.

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
I agree, that a was a fun time 2000-2010. Oohing at iPhoto cross fades, gasping at Expose, anticipating each show like Christmas. And Steve's showmanship, second to none.

People would buy Apple stocks because they know when new products releases, their sale rises.

Actually, they showed two versions, one with RGB and one without.

If you buy one and it doesn't have a big big sign saying "RGB with real colours!!! For the very first time in any tablet (made by Samsung)", then it's Pentile.

If you added a little more bezel on the sides and turned it so it is horizontally, it looks like it is taking on MS Surface design of rectangle with rounded corners.

Just sayin'!

Was there really any doubt the form factor would start to follow the Mini's? It is nice for sure.

What "new" design do you suggest? How else can you make a rectangular device?

It's odd to see these things surfacing now when they won't be released until October. Assuming these are legit, naturally. I'd think the March update is likely, but I wouldn't expect a huge upgrade with internals or processors, etc. Form and memory and little else.

This.

If this comes in March, big IF. It'll still have A6X.

But with a smaller case, they've had to have made some major new evolution of battery technology... or we'll be looking at a 6-8hr battery life iPad, and Apple's not going to make that sacrifice.
