RUMOR: A lighter, thinner iPad and an iPad Mini with a Retina display to be released in March 2013.
A rumor that startet with Digitimes in mid november.. I would trust that as much as what my mail man told me..

It made sense for Apple to introduce the iPad 4 early. Future iOS releases are a good sales argument since they always come out in the fall, holiday sales are important, and introducing the lightning connector on all units at the same time made excellent sense. No need to stray from the successfull annual update scheme otherwise.

Apple owns the market, they don't have much to be scared of.

Why? Does your iPad stop functioning after 6 months?
