Gold iPad 5 and iPad mini 2 leak out, there will be bling for all
Come in, bling lovers, we have Space Gray iPad 5, Gold iPad 5, Space Gray iPad mini 2 and Gold iPad mini 2! This might not be exactly how Tim Cook and the gang will announce the new iPads next week, but it could be pretty close.

The iPad 5 and iPad mini 2 already leaked clad in the new Space Gray armor of Apple, but we were left in the dark as to whether the ultra popular gold color will be present with the new iPads as well, to match your blinged-out iPhone 5s

The leaked photos of the upcoming 2013 iPad upgrades seem to confirm that both the new Apple iPhone and the new tablets will share the same color schemes, unless the hue below isn't a result of some weird lighting shining on the chassis. How would you like the iPad 5 and iPad mini 2 in gold?

Eh, it's looks like the gold is too deep, not like the light champagne color of the 5S. Seems kind of tasteless to me. Definitely going for the silver if Apple can't prove they did a good job anodizing the grey one. I don't want chips in the paint like the iPhone 5 had when it first came out.

At first sight I thought so too but I think the camera/lighting is too blame for that.

If you look at the 3rd picture even the paper appears to be gold which isn't obviously true. There appears to be some sort of golden present in the pictures taken which makes the golden colour appear very deep. IMO

Yeah, the lighting does add a lot more color to the pictures. In this article it looks much better, but still a little too deep for my liking;

I really like how Apple did it with the 5S. It looks basically like silver if you aren't looking at it from 5 feet away; it's very subtle and really only makes the user appreciate the color.

There's just no reason the gold would look different from 5s. If you like it on the iPhone, you'll like it on the iPad.

Not necessarily, seeing as the iPad mini was so much darker colored (metal) than the regular iPads, the Gold color could also be more pronounced in these new iPads. The camera does seem to add coloring to it, but even when the iPhone 5s is photographed, it never comes this close to Gold gold.

It's ugly. I prefer the champagne color of i5s. It's gorgeous.

I think that's a bit too much "gold." The 5s had a better balance with the white glass on the back without a over powering look.

Imagining Dorothy saying "ooooooh honey chilez" and "I'ma have my gold purse" just made my day.

(Fun fact: PhoneArena's spell-check considers "I'ma" an actual word.)

Why do you need so much gold to go to church? Helping out the poor, or showing off to them... Hmmmm.

This is his stage. He speaks Ebonically to offend the African American users. It's so he doesn't get banned for racist comments. Pretty stupid, but smart as far as avoiding a ban.

I do helps out the po folk - but please stay on topic, this here story is about the Gold iPad. I just loves me gold anything chilez and I don't mind if my pad is gold, my heels is gold or I got on gold lipstick. This is what I been waiting for. I'ma go to the beauty parlor and have them redo my braids - fo' real!! I has to thank Apple for this. And, don't gets me wrong, I help with the hungry people at the church shelter but, at the end of da' day, it's all about how this chick can skip down a yellowbrick road.

g2g I want the mini, but I hope it's more like the gold 5S color, retina, A7, and 32 gigs. My wife wants 9.7, my iPad 3 is cool for a larger size. I really want the mini 2

Too much gold. If they made an all-black version with gold trim around the home-button and camera, and a gold Apple logo, I'd go for it.
