0. phoneArena 29 Jun 2013, 21:03 posted on

Schematics have leaked for the fifth-generation Apple iPad and reveal that the next iteration of Apple's full-sized tablet will be taking much of its design from the Apple iPad mini; the edges of the next iPad match those of Apple's 7.9 inch slate and will be less tall and less wide than the current 9.7 inch model...

Because iOS needs a 1.6GHz quad core processor... It barely needs 1GHz dual core to function.

Of course, there isn't any competition that has a better looking tablet or even comes close.

I agree that the ipad mini is gorgeous but the spec for its price is not worth it . . .

Ditto, I'm rather fond of my Z tablet. Sony nailed it, simple as that.

So now they are borrowing other ipad designs? really? They must be out of ideas or taking their own designs. no wonder why their employees are leaving Apple. They need too fired their engineer team

At least it's a good design unlike what SS is doing.

Foot in mouth. Samsungs new tabs look like there phones too...it's called brand unification Einstein. If you were a techie, instead of a pathetic blind fanboy, you'd know that.

Hi love VW? What the hell are you talking about. It's a picture of a VW sign, get over it.

Anyone else think that the fact that they will be removing two sides of the bezel will be bad? How do you hold it without holding onto the sides of the screen?

There's still big top and bottom bezels, so it should still be pretty easy to hold.

Apple added a special touch that made small touches on the each sides of the iPad mini is disabled. Try it yourself. You can use the iPad mini like you're holding it on its 'side bezel'. I think this will also be available on this 'iPad mini-like' iPad. So no worries :)

You can grasp the screen on the sides: It has palm rejection. I never had a false touch register on my Mini.

absolutely bad. it destroys the advantage of ipad being on aspect ratio of 4/3. removing the sides is meaningless besides aesthetic.

The iPad's back is too slippery, it always feel like it will slip out of my hands any minute.

A matte finish would help.

Why doesn't it have a minimal apple made cover on it?

Xperia tablet Z is still the slimmest. lightest and water/dust resistance of them all

Every iPhone & iPad borrows its designs from its predecessors.
