    Actually, storage is a fairly big issue for people from what I read and hear. The key is that it costs a good buck to get lots of storage as evident by the up charge between iPad models going from 32gb to 64gb.

    How cool would a 256gb iPad be? :D

    And a lot will be hesitant to buy now if they know an upgraded model will be out in a short while hurting sales

    In order to have a thinner, lighter iPad, there would have to be an advance in battery technology that enabled smaller batteries to hold enough power to run the iPad 5 for the same 10 hour battery life.

    It would cost a fortune.... I might as well get a new laptop with the $$$. I had a discussion about this concerning the iPod touch with an apple employee one day and he said the same thing and that it probably wouldn't happen. Then again, we won't know until it hits the stores lol.

    I agree with you. I bought this pad just before thanksgiving and now another new one in 3 months!!! The all black ipad would have been cool, too!! It seems that the gap between upgrades is getting smaller and smaller, 5 months after 4 there will be a 5??? All of these new releases are to keep us spending our $$$ and to attract new customers. They knew what they were doing, they could have designed the mini w retina display the first time. They are Apple, they can do anything they want!!!

    The only way Apple will get away with bringing out yet another ipad in March is if it is a totally different design. In the USA they have just done a survey of X number of die hard Apple fans and much to everybody's surprise 43% were not happy with the idea of Apple releasing a ipad every six months. and should they launch one that is not a great deal of difference than the last two then i think it will just kill off the dominance of the market. three ipads in twelve months is just taking the p**s. Their was and still is a lot of ipad 3 owners that are still unhappy about the ipad 4 and that was after seven months can you imagine the uproar that will happen for those who have just got the ipad 4 then three months later Apple come along with a ipad 5?.
