9to5mac has an image on their article about the AT&T and Verizon iPad3's and than I noticed something about the image itself



Notice there is almost no surrounding edges on the sides or top. Is this a leaked photo of the new iPad? or just some mockup?? It looks super thin and sexy I hope this is the new look!

I think it is just close enough that you can't see the entire bezel.

How would you hold it with no bezel?

That would be a white iPad. There is a small black border on the current iPad 2 that is the same size and it goes right around the screen. Then its the white glass boarder.

Well remember all the rumours about the iPhone 4S having edge to edge glass and removal of the button? Maybe they were saving it for the iPad3???

HOPES!

Tilt your screen towards you while looking at the picture. You will see a white bezel ;)

Still ... how would you hold it? With one thumb always on the screen?

^^^ This. ^^^

Geez, people seem to be getting punch-drunk in anticipation of tomorrow and coming up with the most outlandish <excrement>. This afternoon has just been crazy with some bat<excrement> weird ideas. No offense to the OP intended.

There is still a slight edge there I mean this is Apple and I am sure they could figure it out!

You are probably right it's a mock-up but seeing it and then remembering all the rumours about a full screen glass hit me..

I never said it was a mock up - it could very well be an actual image of a white iPad.
