BGR writes today that Topeka Capital analyst Brian White has said in a note to investors today that he thinks that Apple will be launching a fifth-gen full-sized iPad and a second-gen iPad mini as soon as this coming March. And although White often travels far afield to countries such as China to get his scoops first hand, he didn’t have to go far to glean this particular nugget of information, which he says was relayed to him by anonymous sources at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. White says that the sources told him that the iPad 5 will be “lighter and thinner than the iPad 4 that was released in October.” However, it seems that the iPad mini will be pretty much unchanged in terms of its “form factor”. BGR adds that White did not make any comment about whether or not the iPad mini will have some form of Retina display.
