Report: iPad 5 to Debut in October
Next generation iPad may sport Sharp's IGZO display technology.
Though it may have recently lost its place as the world's most valuable company, it's business as usual for Apple as the firm is reportedly preparing to launch the iPad 5 in October.
iLounge claims that the fifth generation iPad will be announced in October, with the site stating that it "had the opportunity to inspect a supposedly accurate — and seriously intriguing — physical model of the completely redesigned fifth-generation iPad."
The site added that the design of the unannounced but inevitable tablet bears a striking resemblance to the iPad Mini. The iPad 5 will apparently include "virtually no left or right bezels."
The device will also purportedly sport "the same chamfered edges and curves" as the iPad mini, but it'll be stretched. That'll be joined by Sharp’s IGZO display technology and smaller chip components.
Apple is rumored to be working on the iPad Mini successor with a Retina display, while another report suggests that the iPad 5 will arrive in March of 2013 instead of October.
