5th generation iPad on the horizon? Unlikely

MacRumors brings the news that a japanese blog defends the idea that a 5th generation iPad is scheduled for a March 2013 release.

I think that’s unlikely.

When Apple released the 4th gen iPad, there was an overall negative reaction due to the fact that the release gave such short lifetime for the 3rd iPad. The counter-argument was that Apple couldn’t stop developing and improving the product technology just so iPad 3 users could feel good about themselves, and that regardless, the iPad 3 was still a great device.

Ok. But releasing a 5th gen just less than 5 months after this whole thing would make me think that the release of the 4th gen could have been skipped, and would give Apple another headache with users and press whining over them not owning the latest model anymore.
