    For a while now we have seen several rumors related to the size and shape of the next-gen iPad. Some of the rumors have suggested the new iPad will take design cues from the iPad Mini. This latest bit of intel might have you scratching your head in curiosity or amazement though. The premier case accessory manufacturer Gumdrop is already poised to start offer a new protective case for the iPad based upon the rumored designs. So, either the folks at Gumdrop have some insider information, or they are making a huge bet that the rumors are true. Here's a statement from them,

    As you can see, Gumdrop is either taking a huge risk or they are supremely confident about the outcome. If they turn out to be right then it will be a big marketing coup for them since it is so far ahead of the launch. Sadly, most of industry speculation suggests we will not see the new iPad teased at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) next week, so we will have to wait a while to find out for sure. We will keep you apprised if more info emerges.

    That is a fine looking case. Like the aggressive thread pattern for grip.

    Interesting. Looks like they made it out of used racing tires, LOL.
