  • Report: Redesigned iPad 5 is Like a 'Stretched iPad mini'


    Only several weeks removed from the iPad 4 refresh and we're already hearing chatter - and peculiar chatter at that - about what the iPad 5 will reportedly deliver and when we may be able to expect its availability.

    On Friday, Jeremy Horwitz of iLounge turned heads with his claim that he personally beheld and fondled a fifth-generation iPad. Calling the physical model "supposedly accurate," Horwitz says the most distinguishing attributes of the iPad 5 are the cues it takes from the iPad mini.

    Go ahead and take a minute to wrap your brain around that assessment.

    Yes, the iPad 5 already exists - partially. But "unlike the iPad 2 and third-generation iPad," Horwitz admits, "the casings for which were basically complete as of the Januaries before they launched, the iPad 5 didn’t seem to be finished yet."

    Calling it a “stretched iPad mini” is "very close to entirely accurate," he writes, adding that October is the estimated time-frame for the tablet's launch. "This part is pure speculation," he concludes, "but we’re guessing that the screens and processors are going to be hard to come by for a while."

      **** man I'm not looking forward for the next Apple product that I will see for 6 months before it's even available to buy... I don't care! Sucks all the interest out of product before it's even released... I'm kind of tired of how news sites are about this Shlt. AND I LIKE APPLE STUFF! I don't want to try and figure out an entire movie before it's release and I don't want to know all the details about products that aren't available yet.

      3 - 4 years for mobile devices 8 - 10 for Pc/macs and game consoles. Is by large an acceptable life cycle.

      I kinda like hearing the rumors. Gives me stuff to (maybe) be excited about. It basically helps add to the hype. Which is a part i enjoy.

      I heard the cheese is just a rumor with no substance behind it.

      It's not weird at all to think that they have the iPad 5 already...they probably had it while they were releasing the iPad 4/iPad Mini. I'm not sure what to think about the, "stretched iPad mini" description though.

      So, if you had your way, we can't get the news (and rumors) we can use just because you and a few other sick individuals think it's fun to surprise yourself? This isn't a game. Movies are entertainment but this is much more to people whose livelihoods depend on this market. If you really don't want to know, stay off these sites like the majority of the public who still think that were are only on the 3rd-gen iPad.

      Reporting all rumors and leaks is critical. Waiting for "confirmation" defeats the purpose. I can judge rumors for myself only if I hear them. Only an idiot continues plugging their ears and saying "LA LA LA LA LAAAAA" after the iPad mini rumors ended up being spot-on.

      Since when? Typical PC life cycle is 3 years.

      iPad mini rumours spot on? Are we talking about recently or 5 years ago when they first started? Because I almost feel like iPad mini rumours created the iPad mini and not the other way around.

      and seriously... "iPhone math"? Sorry I'm waiting on the "iPhone Trig"

      Maybe I'm just ******** because I read the same thing on 4 different sites and it's really not a big deal. Next there are going to be assumption and mock ups... people really can't wait? It's a ******* tablet...

      Reading these rumors is like hitting yourself in the face with a brick. The only thing you learn is not to do it again.

      Only an idiot puts value to rumors. So what, they got the mini correct, that doesn't mean squat if your not getting right every time.

      Means they'll stretch it 683 pixels to get 16:9 aspect ratio. So the resolution for the new iPad mini retina should be 2730x1536.

      The Mini has 16:9 ratio? Since when? Or are you talking about the iPhone/iPod Touch? I doubt they change the aspect ratio, or resolution, even.

      This is sarcasm, right? A reaction to the comment before yours?

      You could probably not read these articles then. I think that would work.
