You may be right Augustya that the iPad 4 will be slimmer due to either screen or battery advances. Battery would be best as that can produce the most noticeable difference in weight and size.
But in reality that tech is not around yet and no one can say with any degree of certainty what will happen. Though it is fun to speculate.
The New iPad screen and battery must be the reason it became slightly heavier and thicker. But the overall size is still great and I love the new screen. Not sure how much thinner or lighter they could make the iPad 4 without trading off some battery life, unless there is some new thinner battery technology coming within the next year...
I would like the sleekness of iPad-2 and Features of iPad-3 in iPad-4...Hmmm...That would be a serious Dilemma If I have the iPad-3 and If I am thinking should I upgrade to iPad-4 !

It has been my experience that when Apple commits to technology, they will stick to it. They do not like to over reach technology because there is more chances of error. With the current screen, they have a known product, that will only improve with continued production. They devoted a lot of effort into getting this ready for the 3rd generation iPad. Now they will want to focus on other areas for the next model. From what I have read, under normal circumstances, they would be moving the storage capacities to 32 Gb, 64 Gb, and 128 Gb. However, they are losing part of their profit on the new screens, so they decided to hold off until next year. They keep their prices consistent by using the trend of electronic to progress quickly. They know that processors and hard drives are going to get faster, bigger, and cheaper with time. With the right timing, they can continue to improve the product, without a price increase.
