Really hoping for a March release. Although I know October is much more likely.

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
so you want 0 rumor news? what the hell?

And you can still be surprised. Just stop reading Apple news. I know what you mean though.

It's right there. It doesn't look any different because it's going to have a Retina Screen.

Looks really great. Though I do worry about the heat generated by whatever chip is driving a retina display in a body that small, given how hot the considerably larger 3rd and 4th generation ipads get.

But when all these FACTS are being leaked it gets a bit old, I miss the guessing and wondering.
As a shareholder (yes, still), I'm kind of glad to see some leaks. Hopefully it will even out this roller coaster ride.

It's actually interesting to see comments like yours. It occurred to me that tech releases are not just about the product. It's about their ability to surprise. Think about this - would your Christmas present be as awesome if it sat under the tree for 2 weeks unwrapped?

Hope the mini has fixed wi-fi. I'm getting tired of mine constantly losing connection. Though, I've been thinking of getting a full size retina. I'm not sure about anything anymore. The mini is sized perfectly, but the full size was better for web-surfing.

I would be so disappointed.

Getting rid of the bezels?? WTF?? Not sure if someone threw a brick at Jonny Ive's head or if this is because Steve Jobs isn't here to point out this garbage design. If this truly is the new iPad than I'm done getting iPads from Apple. I have never been this disappointed in Apple.

Stay off sites like these then? Or just stay off the Internet completely since this so upsets you

Umm, smaller is better. Chop off more than 20% of the weight, and you have a winner.

No issues with wifi on my mini. Maybe you got a lemon?

Fake. Though I do believe that this is exactly what Apple will do, I can't get over the fact that the 'd' looks like it was poorly cloned in photoshop.

This was a given. Looks great!!! Guess this means IGZO displays?
If it comes out looking like a larger iPad mini, I'm not sure how that's even a remotely out-there guess. Seems to make perfect sense, really.

You should file a suit against Apple. They copied your design!

I'm going to guess you're in the minority with the wifi issues... Either your mini is borked or your router is.

Only, a lot of that space is taken up by battery, so would also mean reduced battery life.
Unless they use the same technology as the iPhone 5 battery (not sure if the iPad 4 does) which gives it a slightly better life..

Woah, easy there. I was skeptical at first, but the smaller bezel is actually great on the mini. I found myself holding it like an iPhone, specially since it weights lesser than my 4S, if that stud case with the new iPad, then it shouldn't be a problem.

This is the iPad to replace my 3rd gen. I'm glad I've been waiting to upgrade my full size one till this generation.

Doubt it. Unfortunately Jony Ive has a strange obsession with sharp edges. The mini has them as well.

Maybe time to replace my iPad 2?

I was hoping to have it for at least 2 years before upgrading.

That makes a lot more sense to me than the current iteration. I've always thought that the bezels were totally fugly. It may have been necessary to use wide bezels due to the weight of the iPad, but if they manage to trim the wieght, then they can get by with more attractive, thinner bezels.

About same time ip5 leaks started if pegged for October 2013 release.

This will be sweet with an A7X in it.

Not sure smaller bezel is desired. It would be irritating when holding it. And, isn't that a main advantage of thinner/lighter--easier to hold?

Looks good from what I see here. The main reason I took back my iPad 4 was due to how large and bulky it was compared to the mini. If this is legit, Apple is on the right path.
