Picture of 5th-generation Apple iPad case shows slimmer body, thinner bezels
.Think about how hard it must be to run a company that makes cases for the Apple iPhone or Apple iPad. To get your product out before the competition, you have to take a gamble when it comes time to start producing your product for the next-generation model. You try to get as much information as you can, cultivating sources that hopefully will give you the information you need.

What we have in the picture accompanying this article, is a picture that includes a case made by MiniSuit that it says will fit the 5th-generation Apple iPad. The company says it got the specs and design from a reliable source. Based on the design of the case, the next full-sized iPad will apparently take its design cue from the Apple iPad mini. It will have a sleeker, narrower design with thinner bezels on both sides of the display. Some other changes from the fourth-gen iPad include the relocation of the microphone from the top to the back of the device

Sound familiar? That is because earlier on Friday we passed along a rumor that the 5th-gen iPad will be launched in the third quarter of this year and will arrive with a re-design offering thinner bezels similar to the iPad mini, and a sleeker design. Amazing how two completely different sources can come up with the same information. Well, almost the same information. According to MiniSuit, the new iPad will launch in June.

The Xperia tablet Z design looks a lot better except for the tiny battery. Fix that and you got a winner Sony.

Lets see what kind of update would apple give to the ipad 4 in terms of processing and display

Of course it'll come with an eternal dual core cpu + 1 gig.RAM....by the time APPLE introduces their first ever quad core device ( which will prolly be 5 years down the line) they will dub it as '' revolutionary'' and '' nothing like this exists in the market''....that's because everybody goes octa-core...

Funny, when nvidia released 4+1 core chips, they don't call it penta core, but why exynos call 4+4 chips an octa core? Is this marketing trap?

And yet, Apple's device manage to be smoother and faster than the rest.

Could the lack of multitasking help it manage that?

Predictability will be Apple's greatest downfall.

I just told my friend that yesterday. I was telling him I think Apple needs to skip the 5S and go straight into the 6 and innovate with iOS (it desperately needs it).

Not yet assembled, but looks outdated already, as for me.

All this hate based off of a possible leaked case of a possibility of a possible design. What a bunch of fools, and Wendy how could you have already ordered a dozen of what doesn't even exist yet? Only KingKurogiii made any sense.

'thinner bezels' is not a 'redesign.'

Well, technically it is )

Lol exactly. Even a thicker bezel would actually be a redesign, just an ugly one.
