Full Size Tablet: A Lighter Full-Size Apple iPad Coming Soon?

Full Size Tablet: Most people agree that the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) full-size iPad is already pretty light and thin. Of course, Apple never leaves a stone unturned. If there is a way to make its tablet lighter and thinner, you can be rest assured they will consider every possible option.

Now that you know more about what to expect from the full-size iPad, there is one question that remains: when can we expect the tablet to be released to the public? Here is what Kuo thinks:
