Surprise! iPad 5 will be "lighter and slimmer" with a smaller bezel

0. phoneArena 16 Jan 2013, 15:27 posted on

Oh wait, sorry. That's not a surprise at all. The top two features of every single Apple mobile device yet has led with "lighter and slimmer" or some thesaurus-aided combination of those words. We're pretty sure those words are permanently tattooed on every new Apple hardware designer. Still, we're at least getting a bit more info on how that "lighter and slimmer" will be attained, and it has to do with a smaller bezel...

This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

"just take my money..." - that 's a brilliant line Wendy - first time that I have seen that posted on a Tech Blog.

Apple products obviously don't inspire any level of creativity in their users...

I dont understand why they just didnt do this with the ipad 4 and the ipad mini from the get go, oh that's right because then they wouldn't be able to charge twice for minor updates to the product aka apple's business strategy.

Lighter and smaller.... if Apple keeps on doing this there won't be any kind of iPad as we reach the ~ iPad 40 because it will be too small and too flat to see it :D

Soon it will be transparent and so thin we can shave with it, if you can see it. Might just move toward Star Trek cloaking technology.

As stated in the article, the last post was simply a concept rendering by a designer. This is a rumor from a reputable source.

Still, I'd have to agree with DarkJedi, if you don't want to read Apple news, don't click the links.

ah iSee now. uCannot wait to buy a slightly faster, slimmer version of the 5th iPad in 36 months. Man, being a apple fan certainly is hard on the pocket books and light on usefulness. All the iPads but the 3 need not exist. There should not be 5 of those overpriced tablets out in 36 months. For f's sake, the first one launched in April 2010. Enough with the incremental upgrades for a premium price. lol!

This phrase is quickly becoming the official motto for the blind follower. Better patent it before Apple beats you to it.

Apple really dont need to mention any of these things about the new ipad, all they need to say is "new" and "apple" and the ifans who own all of the current ipad models will start salvating and forming a q at their local apple store

is funny because every Android release comes with a bigger screen than its predecesor.. and nobody say "obviously" will come with a bigger screen and a bigger processor...

Yea buddy. I'm ready for mini with retina.

I am actually floored we are almost to an hour past this story being published and the fandroids (i use a galaxy phone) aren't tearing up the ipad. I guess fandroids and i sheep know the ipad is still the tablet king despite their phones becoming boring duds.
