    I'm gonna predict it first, it will be boxier same as the first gen ipad retro style just thinner ala iphone 4/iphone 5 series. 1st gen ipad has to be my favorite ipad design along with the iPad mini.
    Now I'm not saying it's gonna come out this year but I will say very soon. High chance of a mini redesign for next year and iPad Air to follow the design a year after.

    Because Apple so often reverts to a previous, boxier less sleek redesign of their products.

    I'm not saying exactly like the previous design... It's more like homage to previous design styling cues.

    Coincidentally, October will the 20 year anniversary release of the Newton
    120 model (I still have my 130 around somewhere and was able to start it up a
    couple months ago although the backup battery needs to be replaced). That's
    about as boxy as you can get for a tablet (8 x 4 x 1.25 " thick, 1 lb) so if you
    want to carry your prediction a little farther... :D
