    I'm wondering what kind of battery life we can expect on the iPad 5. I also think they should drop the 16GB version and offer at least 256GB as the largest storage option.

    I'm sure Apple will target similar battery life to previous devices. I agree about the 16 GB version, though with all the hype about cloud these days I can't see it going away.

    Agreed. They probably sell enough of the entry level models to make it worth their while so they'll keep doing it. And, as you said, the cloud combined with some data management does make the 16gb model viable for some people.

    As for battery life, whatever they did for my iPad 2 they should do again. The battery in my iPad 2 has been a beast since day one and hasn't wavered at all. Amazing.

    I'll bank on a time machine. Guess we have a working one in the not so distant future between now and the iPad 5's release :p
