Ditto. With the iPad 4 128GB being released in February, there is no way a mini 2 or iPad 5 will be released before July at the earliest but more likely this fall.

Adding another flash storage chip would barely, if even, affect the production of the current iPad at all. It's more like an attempt to entice users to buy the full size models since the Mini is whipping its ass, until that, is they release the iPad 5.

But they would have waited until March to do that if they were releasing ipad 5 in March.

Maybe Tim finally doubled down on security. For real this time.

Not likely with that back panel for the ipad 5 already showing up on the net.

Why would they? They have the flash storage already. It's a marketing ploy to make sales during this pre iPad 5 period. Disappointing sales have lead to is action...,

Because its beyond silly for a company to release a new variant of a product, only to kill it off 1 month later. And they're not exactly marketing the 128GB ipad much. I dont see how a 128gb ipad would entice users to buy it over the mini. The 128GB is nearly as expensive as the MBA. Nearly all the limited info we have now point to fall and not March.

Unlikely with such a large, global supply chain. There's going to be a leak somewhere.

Yeah there won't be any new iPads until the fall so any1 who's been saying march the past 2 months can shut up now.

Although it seems unlikely, I wouldn't be massively surprised to see an updated iPad Mini soon.

Just about every review I've read of the mini has focused on how low the screen resolution is in comparison to lower priced competition.

I can't see Apple accepting that critisism for long, despite the decent sales of the mini.

Although that's true, I don't think a retina mini is possible to mass produce at the moment.

The natural evolution of what they do would be adding color. I would look for mini's to be available in mutiple colors like the nano and shuffle.

I wish Apple would stick to their original Spring release for iPads and go back to Summer for the release of new iPhones. I don't like waiting until Fall for everything new.

You won't see a iPad mini 2 till June that earliest.

iPad Mini is still in such demand.

...except that I predicted an ipad Micro would be announced in Spring, due to the NExus7's from factor success

I hope iPad Mini 2 is announced/released in March with A6 chip and Retina display.

No chance. Too much battery draw. They need IGZO displays and a die shrink of the A6X (not the A6 since that can't drive the retina display - remember the iPhone only has about the same number of pixels as the current mini) so it is too much to expect. The iPad 5 will look like a mini but be available with 128GB storage and retina. Mini will be refreshed around October and may just get a speed bump rather than retina depending on technology availability.

Exactly. The mini will get an A6 and maybe the 128gb option in the fall. March might see a new iPhone, but you won't see a new ipad. And if anyone really believes that the ipad or iphone will come in colors, you really don't understand Apple's view on thos items. The iPods have colors because they are marketed to kids/young adults. The ipad and iPhone are targeted towards adults/business. This talk about colored iPhones just makes me shake my head, kinda like the ipad mini retina talk does.
