iPad, iPad Mini Next Generation

Anyone holding off on buying an iPad mini because it doesn’t have a Retina display might not have to wait much longer. Topeka Capital analyst Brian White sent out a research note on Friday claiming that Apple (AAPL) plans to release both a fifth-generation iPad and a second-generation iPad mini this March. White said that unnamed sources at the Consumer Electronics Show indicated that “the iPad 5 is expected to be lighter and thinner than the iPad 4 that was released in October, while the form factor of the iPad mini should be similar to the first generation iPad mini that debuted in October.” White didn’t mention whether the new iPad mini would have an upgraded display, although previous rumors have indicated that Apple plans to use Retina displays supplied by AU Optronics for the next version of its 8-inch tablet.
