iPad 5 Thinness and Lightness are Key Selling Points

The new iPad 5 will be released sometime this year. Current rumors point to a fall release. According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities, the new iPad 5 will dazzle with thinness and lightness. In a note seen by AppleInsider , Kuo says that the new iPad 5 will need less power, allowing Apple to reduce the size of the battery by up to 30%. This and other design changes would allow Apple to make the iPad 5 15% thinner (7.5-8mm) and 25% lighter (500g).

The new iPad 5 is predicted to run on the new A7 CPU bringing more processing power to the flagship tablet.

Kuo sees the iPad mini 2 shipping in the second half of 2013 as well. The iPad mini 2 is set to outsell the 9.7-inch iPad 5 by about 60-65%.
