Yeah, We Probably Shouldn't Skip The iPad 5
Only Apple, of course, knows for sure what the fifth-generation iPad will look like. However, that hasn’t stopped the Apple rumor mill from churning, as usual. Now the folks at MacRumors have taken the specs of many of these rumors and released some amazing renderings of the possible iPad 5. [caption id="attachment_380845" align="aligncenter" width="1200"] "iPad 5" next to iPad mini[/caption] Created by the team at CiccareseDesign, the renderings are based on the leaked iPad 5 enclosure that we told readers about a few weeks ago. As you can see, the tablet in these photos is noticeably smaller than the current model. It includes significantly thinner bezels in portrait view, with slightly smaller top and bottom bezels. Also, the renderings show an iPad 4mm shorter, and 17mm narrower than the current design.

However, a Retina display iPad mini could arrive as early as next month. As usual, we'll keep you updated.
