    I hate the iPad's chunky bezels. IF this video is true, I think I will finally get me a sleek looking iPad!

    I'm looking at getting my first iPad soon (as soon as the new models come out) probably go for a Mini. Also replacing my 3Gs with a new iPhone... bring them on!

    With that dramatic music, they're definitely legitimate.

    I'm sure it's only cause they were able to get their hands on the black face plate, but I seriously hope that is not an option (black faceplate, white plastic back).

    Otherwise, I'm liking the smaller bezel of the iPad. If they can get the bigger iPad in the mini design language, with a lighter overall weight, with the same battery life (or better ;) ), I'm going to have a really hard time deciding which one to get, between the mini (if it does come with a retina display) or the ipad 5th gen. The mini is absolute joy to hold, it's way lighter than you imagine it being, but so well constructed.

    Ha, still using metal instead of plastic. And they're releasing a tablet without a removable battery. Apple is definitely doomed.

    A redesigned iPad 5 and a 'low cost' iPhone 5C are all but a forgone conclusion at this point.

    All that really remains to be seen is what kind of spin Apple is going to put on the announcement at their event when everyone already knows what is coming.

    Let's be honest, an "iPhone 5C" is cool, the redesigned iPad is great and all but we want that elusive retina iPad mini to be confirmed.

    Well, there's also the possibility of a revised iPod line. I'm sure there will be some surprises with regards to the next incarnation of the iPhone 5. Plus, I somehow doubt we've seen all that iOS 7 has to offer - especially anything device-specific on the new iPhone models. Not to mention that with the rollout of iOS 7, there's a somewhat better possibility of allowing apps on the Apple TV (just speculation on my part).

    I think there will be plenty to delight and surprise at the next media event...

    I'm hoping the rumoured 13" iPad they're playing about with behind the scenes, will be some kind of iPad Macbook Air hybrid.

    There are certainly times where it would be advantageous to plug the iPad into an external monitor and have the ability to display multiple apps at the same time. In a corporate environment where I'm out and about during the day in meetings, and then either dock with a monitor at home or hot desk, this would really be a killer device for me. Canonical seem to be innovating in the right direction, and it's a great time to take advantage of MS poor hybrid OS.

    On topic though, the iPad 5 while a step in the right direction in terms of making the footprint smaller, for me still needs more than an incremental change. The 'Home' button/ chin/ forehead/ side bezel design, all look a bit old now. I'm sure Apple could push the envelope here and go for a bezel free design, with only a thin bezel at the top for the camera.

    What is with Apple and making the cheaper product look so much damn better than the expensive one? Features aside, I'd rather have the 5C than the 5S (though a daresay the 5S's fingerprint scanner will win me over).

    iOS 7 Beta?!

    So I wonder... did Apple continue working on update 4 and then release it this past Monday, or did they release a week-old version and on this Monday we can expect beta 5?!

    I doubt it. With all the leaks going on, you would have heard something if they were updating the iPod (especially touch).

    Apple is very good at differentiating their products. I'm sure people will post when both the 5C and 5S are released complaining about how the 5C is missing something they need.
