Get your rumor mills started. A Japanese tech blog has reported that Apple is preparing to release a “thinner, lighter” iPad 5 in March, just six months after surprisingly releasing the nominally updated iPad 4 in November. The move would seem to be premature, although analysts who follow the company closely have been pointing toward possible six-month product release cycles going forward. We won’t have to wait long to see if this proves true. [Source: VentureBeat]
