It's a masterpiece of a space battle game in which you're online in a massive way with people from all over the planet - literally and figuratively!

iPhone Plus mock-up offers real 4.94-inch display vision

The "confirmation" bit on the iPad 5 case we're seeing here is more of an assurance from the source which we can't independently confirm, but whose photos imply what's expected either way - a case that matches the iPad mini. With the iPad 5 hitting some time this year and the newly massive iPad 4 being shown today, we must expect that this fifth generation 9.7-inch (standard iPad size) display-toting machine will be appearing closer to October of this year than the previously suggested March.
