Bloggers think Apple will announce redesigned iPad this month
Usually, when we're coming up on a new Apple announcement, the rumor mill kicks into high gear, and you need a machete to get through all of the speculation. But, a new rumor is claiming that Apple wants to sneak a new iPad on us and announce a complete redesign to the tablet this month.

The strange thing about this rumor is the source of it. Basically, what happened was that a number of well-known Apple bloggers held a public discussion on social site Branch yesterday. The topic of the discussion started out on the recent report that Apple would begin producing the next iPhone this quarter. The general thought process of the discussion was that Apple won't wait until WWDC in June to make a new product announcement, and a couple reporters, including Matthew Panzarino from The Next Web, and Rene Ritchie of iMore said that they have sources saying there will be an iPad announcement coming this month. 

The best we've seen so far about a new iPad are the supposed images of the rear of redesigned iPads that leaked back in January. And, we haven't heard anything about Apple booking any event space at the usual haunts.

This must be a redesign with PVR Rouge GPU and A15 Quadcores A7™

If there is a product that I would buy from Apple, it would have to be a MacBook Pro. Yes there are computers with the same specs out there, but realistically CL has MBP's with Quad i7's for $1100.

Back on topic: An iPad with such specs would be untouchable. Screen resolution needs a little bump since the N10 and future tablets will support the same or higher resolutions.

Really, once you get much beyond 1080p, it is just posturing. The iPad's screen and the Nexus 10's screen are beyond anything our eyes can discern individual pixels on, so going higher is useless. I would rather see resolutions stay where they are and battery life get upgraded significantly.

Battery life is something a lot of users are complaining about, but I have yet to see any response from the major device manufacturers in their current devices, excluding Motorola of course with their Razr HD, Razr Maxx, and Razr Maxx HD.

I'd like to hear your thoughts on the 1080p devices that are flooding the market right now.

Apple has gone from the 3rd gen iPad to the 5th gen much too quickly.

If this rumor is to be true, which is why I'll have my giant salt shaker ready, that would mean three generations of iPads in a year. That's not good.

Unless Dalrymple confirms it, the 'rumors' are just so much noise.

Jim has been silent about an 'impending' iPad. More like June/July/August for an iPad announcement.

I think the jump from 3rd gen to 4th gen was more related to the new lightning port than anything else. Hopefully they will be back to the same one-year cycle they had before. So I'm hoping Apple will launch new iPads around the 4th quarter of this year.
