Glad I didn't buy the ipad 4. The ipad 5 will no doubt see an all new re design. iPad 4 owners will feel more burned than the ipad 3 owners did after apple announced the ipad 4.

Digitimes cited an [...] industry source, Captain Obvious, as reporting that the screens would use a similar mix of suppliers to the iPad mini screen....

I can bet that there will be no iPad 4th Gen. w/ 128 GB. The 5th will be the first to offer this storage.

There has to be a point where any thinner and it just becomes pointless, lighter and more powerful, of course, something can only get so thin where it will start to be uncomfortable to hold.

Like what? What does the iPad need so desperately? It's a tablet; It has a (damn good) screen, cameras, a processor, storage, and RAM. This device has only been on the market for 3 years. Saying that it needs a revolutionary change implies that the iPad is failing -- which we all know is not the case.

This is great - not only is the mini's screen better quality because of a more dense ppi compared to the iPad 2 - this thinner lamination process allows for a clearer brighter, more accurate picture as well.

See iPhone 5 vs. iPhone 4S - same ppi, much different display quality.

The whole "thinner, lighter" thing is simply an added bonus imo.

Have you missed all of the reports saying the 128 gb iPad will be released on Feb. 5th? no way that's a 5th gen.....

What Xiroteus said is mostly how I feel. I don't want it to be thin, I want a file structure, airdrop, etc. It just annoys me that Apple markets "thin" as huge selling point. It's not anymore.

a file system on an apple device? ull see ms selling a million surfaces before apple implements a filesystem. its against anything they stand for. they dont want u to look at "files" videos r supposed to simply play on an dedicated app like iTunes. they want files to "just work"

It's too bad that they at least don't have stacks. I don't need it to be complicated, but stacks are the most useful thing on the mac and it would be awesome on the iPad. Just click a stack, select the file and it "Just works".

What does this have to do with what your iPad does? Does making the device thinner and lighter stop it from doing something else? How often do we get rumors/scoops on new software features anyway?

iPad mini stats prove it is a selling point. And how does making the iPad thinner and lighter prevent it from offering new/different software features?

If its thinner and lighter and has the form factor of the Mini i'll be all over it

Doesn't bother me too much but the current iPad is heavy.

iPad mini proves that people wanted an 7-8 inch iPad. That was the selling point. Let's just say I have my doubts about Apple really doing anything new with the next iPad. I fully expect us all to be disappointed.

Thin + solid is one thing. But for the most part, these things are thin and hollow. Devices need to be usable and durable too.
The iPad can afford to be thinner. An iPad mini profile would be perfect on the full size. After holding the mini, my iPad 3 feels bulky and heavy.

Anyone who purchased an iPad 4 should've known better, knowing that the iPad 4 wasn't much different from the first 3 versions. I think some iPhone 5 owners will also feel burned if Apple decides to release an iPhone with a larger display this year, something that may be necessary to turn around Apple's plunging stock.

Wait a minute. If this is going to use the iPad mini's screen technology, then does that mean the resolution will go down to 1024X768?!?!?!

I don't understand this mentality. I have an iPhone 5 and an iPad 4. I feel no remorse and won't think any less of these products even if the next generations are much better, faster, lighter, etc. If you have to have the lastest Apple item to vindicate your exisstance or make yourself happy you may want to examine your priorities. #firstworldproblems

Besides, Apple is THE luxury product with great resale value. Upgrading is not that cost prohibitive if the next gen is truly a must have.
