The mating of the two doesn’t really tell us anything we didn’t already know: the new iPad, expected to be launched around October (not September), will look like a scaled-up iPad Mini, with thinner bezels on the sides. As we mentioned then, the tablet is also expected to borrow the film-based touch panel from the Mini to reduce thickness and weight.
