I think that it is safe to say we won't see a new iPad Mini until this Fall. As far as the 5th gen iPad, it is anyone's guess. If the rumors of the new case design are accurate and true, then I would suspect that we would see it around April. Otherwise there wouldn't be so much about the design already leaked out.
But Apple may have moved everything to a Fall just-before-Christmas release cycle.
If I were you, I'd wait until April and see how the rumors are going.

This is going to sound like trolling, but it isn't. Fact is fact. The iPhone 5 is not a redesign, it is just a stretched 4S with slightly updated internals.
Looks like a duck; quacks like a duck. I think I'd call this comment a duck.
Obviously he means a redesign of the enclosure, which the iPhone 5 obviously is to the iPhone 4S. What the hell do you call a redesign?, a complete toss out of the old with something resembling a starfish case as "new" "redesign"? Please...get real.
