Later this year – possibly in March and possibly as far away as October, depending on who you're listening to – Apple will release a new iPad

Since the fourth-generation iPad largely resembled the third-generation iPad, which in turn largely resembled the second-generation iPad (and let's not even bring the first-generation iPad into this), it seems reasonable to assume that Apple will play with the shape and size of the tablet this time around.

Exhibit A: A new set of photos obtained by 9 to 5 Mac, which allegedly shows part of the casing of the iPad 5

"We were told this is a prototype back piece for the fifth-generation iPad with a 9.7-inch display," writes the 9 to 5 Mac team, citing an anonymous source at an iPad accessories maker based in China. "We were also told that the casing is almost as thin as the iPad Mini’s back."
