Could This Be the Front of the Next iPad?

Since the launch of the iPad mini, there's been some speculation that the next full-size iPad might ape its looks. Today, French site Nowhere Else has published an image of what it claims to be the bezel of the next iPad—which does indeed look a little like the mini's.

While it's certainly worth taking a rather large pinch of salt along with the picture, it's worth pointing out that Nowhere Else does have previous good form when it comes to Apple rumors—correctly spotting the Lightning connector and the iPhone's nano-SIM cradle in the past.

As for the bezel, it certainly appears to be narrower down the sides than the current iPad, and feature a slightly chamfered edge. That might, maybe, possibly suggest that the next iPad will have a slightly smaller footprint. Or it might just be a hugely misleading rumor. Tough to know for sure—but we can't wait to find out.
