Rumor puts fifth-gen iPad, second-gen iPad mini in March
In March, Apple is planning to launch both a fifth-generation full-sized iPad and a second-generation iPad mini, according to Topeka Capital Markets analyst Brian White. The <a href="http://appleinsider.com/articles/13/01/11/rumor-fifth-gen-ipad-second-gen-ipad-mini-to-debut-in-march">claim</a> is based on checks with industry sources at CES this week. White mentions few details about the new hardware, except that the fifth-gen iPad will be thinner and lighter than the fourth-gen model, and that he expects the next Mini to keep its form factor, just getting better internal components. There's no indication of whether this might mean a Retina display, as one recent rumor has suggested.<br /><br />If Apple does bring out new tablets in March, it would represent one of the fastest turnarounds ever for the company's products; the fourth-gen iPad and first-gen Mini were both launched last November. Other reports have hinted, however, that Apple wants to start updating some devices twice a year. Although that strategy would diminish the importance of launch events, it might help Apple better compete against Google's Android platform, which sees a constant stream of new devices from different manufacturers.
