  • 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."

      It's laying on top of an iPad 3rd-generation (or 2nd-gen).

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.
      Then why in the world did you click on this article? It's like watching the weather channel and kicking and screaming because you don't want to hear the forecast.

      Just change the channel.

      Ya I know, I'm usually the first one to say that... I seen the same "news" on 4 different sites... I also seen the Apple stock plummet because of rumors and well just a bit sick of it... I also seen just a bunch of dumbass news surrounding Apple and I doubt even 75% of it is true... I know... it's a bit irrational.

      like a stretched iPad mini you say?... well that's funny because i always though of it the other way around, like the iPad mini name suggests, it is a mini version of the iPad, so stretch it out and what do you get? the best magic trick ever...I can't believe MMI just made that a headline!

      I understand what it means, I'm just not sure how I feel about it.

      Or something to be majorly disappointed at. I was hoping the 5 would really have a wider screen. Will be upgrading from an iP4 to a Nexus 4 soon.

      Well since i am loyal to the brand i have no feelings of disappointment. Nor do i plan on jumping ship. I am happy with my preference.

      On the contrary. Only an idiot selectively decides to ignore relevant information from unofficial sources and makes poor decisions because of it. People who only care about official information are what you would call "tools." My brother canceled his iPod touch 5th gen order as soon as the "imminent iPad mini announcement" rumors began to solidify and make sense (introducing Lightning with slew of new devices).

      He would have lost money to turn right around and sell it when the mini was only $30 more. He would have been stupid to ignore it and end up not having what he truly wanted. That's just an "informed consumer" example. People who have livelihoods that depend on this information are much harder pressed to scrutinize it. They can't scrutinize what they never see or hear about, so QUIT YER DAMN YAPPIN'!
