Rumors on apple iPad 5 and iPad mini 2: Thinner, Lighter and Faster?

When will the iPad 5 coming?
We have heard too much rumors about apple and their gadgets, sounds like these insiders never need holidays. Currently a Japanese blog Macotakara leaked a rumor, claims that the next generation iPad (iPad 5?) is coming in March 2013 --- only 5 months after iPad 4's launching.

Perhaps it's a little early to talk about details of this unconfirmed tablet. What we hear from rumors is that the iPad 5 would be thinner and lighter and current model. To say it specifically, it's 4 mm shorter, 17 mm narrower and 2 mm thinner than the iPad 4.

It's also said the iPad 5 will be available in black/slate and white/silver which is similar to the iPad mini. It hasn't been a long time since iPad 4 and iPad mini's launching, so we don't think the new tablet would be available in a short period of time.

The iPad 4 was officially announced on September 13, along with iPad mini. Compared with the low key full-sized one, the mini version of iPad is more welcome: a new sized tablet with a faster A6X processor, an advanced 720P Face Time camera, a new Lightning connector and dual-band Wi-Fi.
Rumored iPad mini 2
Here we also have an old (nearly one-week old) rumor for you. News from apple's Taiwanese supply chain, it's said the second generation iPad mini is about for mass production. This new tablet, temporary called iPad mini 2, will upgrade its display resolution to 2048 * 1536 pixels and use the same A6X processor as iPad 4.

Insider claims that apple gets ready for all components of the second gen iPad mini, plans to  start a small range testing.

The iPad mini 2 is said to maintain a 7.9'' display but upgrades resolution to 2048 * 1536 pixels with 326 ppi. Powered by a dual-core A6X chip, the iPad mini 2's speed can be twice as fast as iPad 3 (the new iPad).

In order to protect market share, it sounds like apple is going to launch new products more and more frequently. The most important thing I care about is apple must bring out more innovative products to satisfy customers' requirements. Anyway, let's stay tuned and dig up the truth.
