Assembled iPad 5 shell gets compared to the iPad 4 on video, reveals iPad mini inspiration

The 5th generation iPad is coming fast and furious and from what we know about it, Apple's venerable tablet will be thinner, lighter and with less bezel than before. Dubbed iPad 5 for now, the slate's eventual chassis parts have been kidnapped from the factory and assembled together for our viewing pleasure in the video below, compared to the current iPad 4 edition, and it seems all those rumors its design will be similar to the iPad mini might turn out to be rather correct.
