Ok, so as we know the iPad still has its original casing with about an inch thick banner around it. As assumed, they will be changing it to more of the iPad Mini's style, very close to the edges.. That being said, do you guys think that the screen will become larger to fill in the space or the actual iPad will become smaller? I feel like the next iPad will have a bigger screen to maximize the size of the screen while keeping the same body size, this way it separates itself even more from the Mini. What do you guys think?

Based on leaks, the next iPad will have the same sized screen with a much smaller bezel.

In the future, Apple could release an iPad with a 11-12" screen that is similar in size to the current iPad. However, we are unlikely to see such a product this year.

No they won't make the screen bigger any time soon. Technically the iPad is still a new device as it has been released in the past 3 or so years, granted that is a LONG time in the tech world. It took the iPhone like 5 years just to get a .5 inch update.

I'm counting on the bezel getting smaller. I'm returning my ipad mini because it just is too small. It was actually starting to hurt my eyes. An ipad with the ipad mini bezel design might be the perfect tablet. Can't wait till the fall.

The screen size feels just right. The current device size is fine, but an iPad mini style bezel will be a nice improvement.
