Alleged front panel of the iPad 5 pops up, flaunts iPad mini-esque design

Alleged front panel for the upcoming iPad 5 has appeared, and if it is the real deal, certainly reconfirms that Apple is chasing the iPad mini design paradigm with its upcoming tablet.

Sources from the supply chain hinted before that the iPad 5 will be almost a third lighter than Apple's current best achievement, and sport minimal side bezel, making it even more compact and comfortable for carrying around, while preserving the premium aluminum shell.

With newcomers like the Sony Tablet Xperia Z, which manages to weigh less than 18 ounces at less than 7mm thickness, the iPad design is poised to respond with a slimmer, lighter and more compact slate that still carries the "Resolutionary" display with 3 million pixels strong, so the panel you see above might very well be what's in store for it. Speculation mounts for mass production in July/August and iPad 5 unveiling in September.
