    Tomorrow is the big Apple event! At Noon Central Time, Apple will be unveiling their next iPad products. Of course we are all super excited here at HQ and wanted to share our enthusiasm. We thought it would be a cool idea to compile several of the most prevalent rumors regarding what we might see from Apple's new iPad line. Here's a breakdown with several links:

    Supply chain leaks suggest newly improved displays as well as a future large sized 12.9-inch iPad: http://www.ipadforums.net/apple-ipa...le-s-display-plans-confirms-oct-22-event.html

    Fingerprint scanner will likely appear on the iPad 5 and the iPad 2 Mini: http://www.ipadforums.net/apple-ipa...pad-mini-likely-get-fingerprint-scanners.html

    New high res pics leaked ahead of event show off new iPads: http://www.ipadforums.net/apple-ipa...fer-detailed-look-ahead-october-22-event.html

    The gold color of the iPhone may be available for the new iPads: http://www.ipadforums.net/apple-ipad-news/115260-ipad-5-ipad-mini-2-rear-shells-leak-gold.html

    Next-gen iPads will likely have even thinner bezels than before: http://www.ipadforums.net/apple-ipa...o-showcases-thinner-ipad-mini-like-bezel.html

    These are all rumors that we have already heard. We also have additional intel that the next-gen iPads might have a 64-bit Apple processor, possibly called the A7X. As a guess, we expect pricing for the new iPad 5 to be roughly like this:
    • 16GB storage version = $499
    • 32GB storage version = $599
    • 64GB storage version = $699
    • 128GB storage version = $799
    Sound off and share what you are most looking forward to from Apple's event!

    Since I just picked up two new ipads less then 15 days ago I'm a bit sad... but that is tech life... always something new around the corner.

    Can't wait!

    I just traded in my original iPad into Gazelle. I am anxiously awaiting this into. I purchased the iphoneS and absolutely love it, and particularly love the fingerprint scanner. I sure hope the new ipad has it.
