The edges don't look as sharp as current iPads, which IMO is a good improvement because iPads now are not that nice to hold for prolonged periods

Yep...the Bezel on the iPad is actually too big and makes the device a tad too large for most. Get rid of that and you can make it smaller or go bigger with the screen some.

I prefer the Mini's bezel (and the iPad should do the same) and if the iPad is lighter, then it becomes easier to hold, especially if the back has a coating on it for gripping.

This has about done it for me; between this rumor and the 128GB possibility, I think I'm going to wait until the 5th one comes out. I may get a low capacity Mini to tide me over though, as I am between iPads at the moment, and it actually has been a bit of a pain to only have an iPhone 5 (good though it may be).

I'm not sure what your complaint is. Have you tried the iPad Mini's narrow bezel and been disappointed with it?

I have a feeling quite a few people have also held off purchasing their first iPad. I know I have. I was just waiting for that 'perfect storm' of features/value that it takes Apple products a few generations in to hit.

iPad 5 ladies and gents. You've seem it here 7 months in advance. I have to admit that for the last 2-3 years of apple devices I have basically seen the product months before release. I think until the iphone 6 comes out I'm not going to log onto this site. Lol

I guarantee that's the exact same aluminum thats on the iPad mini.

On a device that doesn't perform half as well in real world use? It drops every other frame and its battery is absolutely pathetic for a modern tablet.

I like the tape idea. You can draw your own design on it to give it a more personal look.

Now that this is out..

They better release this soon. It is such a major change and a rather practical change, people in the know will wait and the current model sales will suffer. They need a tighter grip on leaks. That is unless it was meant for release soon.

Someone needs to build a periodic table layout of ios devices. With ipods/ iphone in place of noble gases and ipads aling the bottoms like solid metals... Lol

I thought Apple try and go for thinner and lighter devices? Only Ipad 3/4 stopped this trend.

March?

So with the leaks starting, could a March release be possible? I think something would come out in March, why release everything in 1 quarter?

Sounds like a 128gb model will come in March. I bet they wait until October for this to utilize next chip tech--A7X. A7 will debut in iPhone 5S this summer.

So far I am not a pad adopter. A reduced border iPad or a retina iPad Mini would make me pull the trigger if only to see how some more busy apps work on the pad vs the phone. I have met dozens of kids that crave iPads, some of which would settle for a Kindle Fire HD as a lower cost backup plan if budget is a constraint.

I have some reservations about the thin bezel from usability perspective that will have to be put to rest once the device is out, but it sure looks great! Assuming it will be good deal lighter and maintain similar battery life, my iPad 4 will feel pretty abandoned as soon as the new one comes out!

Now all we are missing is the 4.5 - 5" version of the same design. Bring on the phablet Apple! That would be one sexy iOS family.

Redesign, released in 128gb at launch, A7X, advanced Siri, NFC, 8mp camera and stereo speakers?

The mic hole actually makes me think it's real.

The reality is that it's expected to be redesigned exactly like the mini right? The mini houses a 4:3 display, the full size houses a 4:3 display. The cases should by all rights be exactly the same in every way but actual size.

If someone wanted to fake this, all they'd need to do is take a picture of an ipad mini case. If it's not next to anything to give it scale, no one would be able to tell the difference. Even with another mini case next to it, it's easy enough to scale one up.

People have already made a full size mock up though.

I mean do you think Apple is going to release ipad 5 as heavy and the same design as the last few?

It's 99% certain almost ipad will look like this. Real or fake it won't be long until Apple announce one and we can all buy it. My prediction is March. We seen Iphone 5 parts a few months before launch. October will be all about Iphone.

Why would apple stay with the same style of paint job like on the iPhone that has received so many complaints of chipping and silver showing through?

Ipad 3 was the tipping point on a truly great device. Retina+LTE=Hotness
Same for the iPhone 5

If this ends up being true it will be a DAY 1 buy for me. The iPad Mini just blows me away every time I hold it compared to a normal iPad.
