Apple to unveil iPad 5 in March 2013

According to rumors Apple is preparing to launch a new iPad in March 2013.

The rumors, which stem from Japanese tech blog Macotakara, and were then reported on Mashable, cite an "inside source." According to this alleged source the new iPad will be not that far off from an iPad Mini, being thinner and lighter than the current model at 237mm in height, as opposed to 241mm for the existing iPad, and just over the existing 200mm of the iPad Mini.

The report also mentions a retina display of 2048 x 1536 with a 7.9-inch screen running an A6X processor, though scant other technical details are available.

The original iPad Mini launched in November of this year, after months of speculation, with a 7.9 inch screen.

Those who wanted an iPad for Christmas and did not manage to get it (both iPad and iPhone 5 were sold out in the UAE), they can wait till March 2013 and buy the new generation iPad or iPad 5.

iPhone5 is being sold at its lowest price at the Apple iStore for Dh2,599 for a 16GB.

One senior official said the unlocked iPhones are yet to arrive. “It will take a while and we still don’t know when the stocks would come. Meanwhile we are only selling iPhone5 as part of the du package,” said the official.

Abhimanyu DP, a Dubai resident, said: “I went twice to the Etisalat kiosk next to Virgin Megastore but they had run out of stock. They said it comes every day and runs out of stock by afternoon,” he said.

“My idea is to get a mobile on a plan and the Etisalat 4GB plan suits my requirements better,” he said.
