New video shows Apple iPad 5 and Apple iPad mini 2 casings

New video shows Apple iPad 5 and Apple iPad mini 2 casings
We don't expect Apple to introduce the Apple iPad 5 or the Apple iPad mini 2 next week at its press event. No, the September 10th event is all about the Apple iPhone 5S and the Apple iPhone 5C. But sometime next month, Apple will take the wrapping off the Apple iPad 5 and the Apple iPad mini 2. A video posted on YouTube Friday showed off the shells of the two upcoming tablets.

The Apple iPad 5 shell has been leaked before, so there is nothing unexpected about the thinner, smaller form factor when compared to its predecessor. In addition, a lot of the design cues obviously came from the Apple iPad mini. And check out the thinner bezels on the iPad 5.

As far as the difference between the Apple iPad mini and the Apple iPad mini 2, the one and only change involves the Apple logo. On the OG iPad mini, the Apple logo was polished into the block of aluminum while the logo on the new model is chrome and is inserted through a cut-out on the back of the shell. Other than that, there seems to be no design changes at all between the two generations of iPad mini slates.

Since 2010, please name the price hikes at the introduction of a new iPad or iPhone.

Setting the bar at triple what the phone costs to make obviously allows some leeway when raising the price

S4 cost Samsung around $250 to cost same with HTC One and every other flagship. Phone aren't that bad, some stuff they charge you like 1000% more than it cost to make like "premium cables" that are no better than a $5 one.

You're so right. Too bad it doesn't look classy and refined like TouchWiz, the most bloated mobile OS on the market.

Like S Voice? What an embarrassment. Samsung should work on finishing their apps before they release them. Most of them work half the time.

My prediction that Apple sales will fall to 75% by 2016 is perfectly on track!! Apple are so out of touch with reality, they are more greedy than Goldman Sacks banksters!! Roll on Nokia Lumia 1520. And for those that say Lumia will not be branded with Nokia but Microsoft are talking rubbish. 2.5 billion people in the world use the word Nokia to refer to a mobile phone, so why would Microsoft move a name that is so powerful! You remove the name Nokia, the 2.5 billion people in the world won't recognize it as a mobile phone. SIMPLE. .

Dude this comment is pretty sad. What stake do you have in whether Apple does well or not? Stop taking it personally. It's just a phone and it's all about personal preference. Period.
