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

“Kuo has forecast Apple to release a new full-size iPad in the third quarter of 2013. That goes against some other recent rumors, which pegged a fifth-generation iPad to launch in March, which would be about six months after the launch of the iPad 4 and would continue with a twice-per-year upgrade cycle.”

While there is no way of knowing for sure if his information and prediction is accurate, we do know that Kuo has correctly predicted product launches in the past. For example, he predicted that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) would launch a new tablet before the end of 2012. Soon enough (in October), the company released its fourth-generation iPad.

One last bit of information from Kuo:

“Kuo also believes Apple’s 2013 lineup will include an updated iPad mini with a high-resolution Retina display. He expects the next iPad mini to have the same 2,048-by-1,536-pixel resolution as the full-size iPad, which would pack in more pixels per inch on the smaller 7.9-inch screen and would allow developers to write their applications for one shared resolution.”

Do you agree with his predictions, or do you think he is off base? Share your thoughts below.
