Fifth Generation, Smaller, Lighter, Full-Sized iPad Coming March 2013?

Alongside recent rumors of a possible Retina-display-enabled iPad mini we’ve also heard reports of a probably lighter full-sized iPad to arrive in the future. On that very same note comes another report that tries to outline such a new iPad, the fifth generation, believed to land in March 2013.

March/April seems to be the timeframe for Apple’s 9.7-inch iPad releases, except the 4th generation iPad which brought some spec bumps and a lightning connector to the previous, third generation model. The next iPad, claims the report, will be a thinner, lighter iPad. Some numbers are mentioned (“the expectation comes to have a small 4mm in height, 17mm in width, depth 2mm”) but these could only make sense if the next iPad will be this much smaller than the current one — thus making it as thin as the iPad mini.

Design cues from the smaller iPad are also mentioned, which could be a logical move from Apple, after the iPhone 5 and the iPad mini, with the brushed edges and new-style backplate. We’ve still got a little more than two months to go until March 2013 so we can’t tell for sure whether these rumors will turn out to be true but the appear to be a logical evolution of the Apple tablet.
