iPad 5 to Be 'Thinner and Lighter' Using iPad Mini Screen Technology
While a prediction that the next-generation iPad will be thinner and lighter than the current one may not seem an overly ambitious one, Digitimes claims to have details, suggesting that the iPad 5 will borrow the G/F2 (DITO) thin-film type touch screen technology used on the iPad mini.
Digitimes cited an un-named industry source as reporting that the screens would use a similar mix of suppliers to the iPad mini screen.
Just last week, iLounge shared details on the fifth-generation iPad, noting that it would be smaller in every dimension than the current model and suggesting that a change to the display technology would be necessary to achieve that reduction.
