Next-Gen iPad and iPad Mini launch likely this March

The new year rumors have started to circulate in the absence of any authentic news or updates direct from the manufacturers.

As for Apple, which is always secretive about its prodcuts and releases, it is rumored that the next-gen iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2 are likely to hit the market in coming March.

The news come from Topeka Capital Markets analyst Brian White, which released a report Friday, 11 January highlighting some of his observations from this week's CES in Las Vegas, noting that "checks" at the show suggest that Apple is looking to launch the next-generation versions of the iPad and iPad mini in March.
"Our checks at CES indicate Apple will release the iPad 5 and the second-generation iPad mini this March. The iPad 5 is expected to be lighter and thinner than the iPad 4 that was released in October, while the form factor of the iPad mini should be similar to the first generation iPad mini that debuted in October."

White's comments are in line with a previous report from Japanese blog Macotakara which claimed that a thinner and lighter fifth-generation iPad will be launching in March. RBC analyst Doug Freedman had also claimed that Apple was accelerating its plans for the second-generation iPad mini. 

Well these are still rumors - let us wait for something official from Apple.
