The leaked photos of the next generation iPad’s rear shell have indicated that the next generation iPad may end up looking like the iPad mini with narrower bezels along the sides in portrait mode and thinner body.
Apple accessory manufacturer Minisuit has already created a case for the 5th generation iPad based on data and specifications they’ve received from a reliable source, which is very similar to the leaked photos.
Apple has just announced a new version of the 4th generation Retina iPad with 128GB, twice the storage of the top-end model.
As expected, the Wi-Fi-only model will be available for $799 and the Wi-Fi+Cellular model will be available for $929. The 128GB Retina iPad will be available starting Tuesday, February 5th through Apple’s Online Store, Apple’s retail stores and select Apple authorized resellers.
Apple surprised us by releasing the 4th generation iPad along with the iPad mini in October, just seven months after releasing the 3rd generation iPad. It has been widely speculated that Apple was moving to a fall release for the iPad.
But Japanese blog Macotakara reports that according to their sources, Apple is planning to release the next generation iPad in March 2013.
As expected, Sprint, Verizon and AT&T have announced the availability of 4G LTE-capable iPad mini and the 4th generation iPad in their retail stores today.
