Apple iPad Will Inherit iPad Minis Thin Size
Not only will the new Apple iPad inherit the iPad Mini’s size, it will also inherit its good looks according to one report.
It will also lose some weight and acquire a film based touch vs a glass based touch.
The fourth-generation iPad, and the third-generation device before it, are actually heavier and thicker than the iPad 2, something made necessary by the introduction of the Retina display in those later devices. Shaving weight and size isn’t only logical because of the iPad mini’s example, it’s also something that could help Apple considerably in terms of providing an upgrade incentive to existing iPad owners.
Most likely the new iPad will occupy the same price point as before and is scheduled to be released sometime around October.
