We spoke about the upcoming 5th-generation iPad in great detail on a number of occasions, and while we cannot know for certain what new features the tablet will be packing, there’s a general feeling that the iPad 5 will come with a bezel very similar to that of its smaller sibling.
There’s been a great deal of rumors in regards to this, so the potential thinner bezel of the iPad 5 appearing on a website just adds fuel to this now growing fire. According to Nowwhereelse, they believe they have come across the first image of what could very well be the front of the iPad 5, but we have to remain skeptical.
While we have to remember to take such rumors with a grain of salt, the website has been correct on several occasions, so if this is the real deal, then what do you think of the change?
It’s clear to see that if this is the front of the next-generation iPad, then Apple will not be changing much, just a narrower bezel and that’s about it. We know Apple haters out there will be getting stuck in right now, as some of them will be saying this is no major design change as current iPad owners had hoped.
They do have a point, because it all looks much the same as previous versions of the iPad, apart from the thinner bezel that is. However, we have to ask how else do you think the front of the iPad 5 would look like? Most tablets stick with the same rectangle form-factor, and for the most part the front of them have stayed the same as well.
Maybe things will change once we begin to see flexible displays being used more, that’s once the technology is ready for mass production?
