Got a New iPad for Christmas? Don’t Read This…

Nothing upsets the person who just invested in or received a new piece of technology like news of the technology being quickly replaced by an unexpected superior new model.

Well, there’s a good chance that buyers and recipients of the new iPad 4 this Christmas will only be able to enjoy having the “current model” for a few more months. If the mobile rumor mill is accurate, the next-gen iPad could arrive as early as March.

With Apple now refreshing devices more than once per calendar year, it appears that 2013 could be a fruitful year for iDevice makeovers.

According to the hottest rumor in mobile this week, Apple is actively prepping a thinner, lighter fifth-generation iPad for arrival in spring. This comes from sources speaking with Japanese blog Macotakara.

Here’s what the approximate English translation looks like:

According to my inside source, iPad(5th) may be released in March, 2013. Source told that, design of this new iPad will be like iPad mini in detail, and be thinner and lightweight. (The expectation comes to have a small 4mm in height, 17mm in width, depth 2mm).

So… are you upset that the next new iPad 5 may soon upstage your new iPad 4 in just another 12-16 weeks? Please weigh in with a thought or comment below.
