Gold, Silver and Space Grey Apple iPad and Apple iPad Mini to launch in October 2013 - Sonny Dickson and NowhereElse sneak peek on Apple's Colour Revolution
The Apple iPad is coming. And if the latest rumours are true, both the 9.7” Apple iPad 5 and the 7.9” Apple iPad Mini it seems, are slated to get a new colour makeover akin to its smartphone parent, the Apple iPhone.
This according to the blog of noted Australian Blogger Sonny Dickson blog in the article “Alleged images show iPad 5 in Silver, space gray” published September 25, 2013 5:18 AM PDT by Lance Whitney, CNET News and “iPad Mini 2 to come in gold and space gray, claim latest leaks”, published September 27, 2013 5:03 AM PDT by Lance Whitney, CNET News!
According to his website this time “Hands-On With the iPad 5 in Space Gray And Silver!” published September 25, 2013 By Sonny Dickson, Sonny Dickson, the Apple iPad 5 looks to be getting the same treatment, with the pictures showing casting that are Silver and Space Grey in colour.
But who is, Sonny Dickson?
Apparently he’s an Australian teenager living with his mom and dad in suburban Melbourne and has a healthy love affair with expensive gadgets and a curious desire to work at Apple someday in the future. He came to fame when he posted early images of the Apple iPhone 5S and the Apple iPhone 5C that suggested that they was going to be a Gold Version and a Multi-coloured version.
Here are a few screenshots from his website (sorry can’t copy his pics)! He’s the secret to my predicting capabilities over the years, going back as far as 2007!
His story is backed up by French site NowhereElse which also claims that the Apple iPad 5 may appears in October 2011 in Space Grey as stated in “Leaked photos show 'space gray' iPad Mini model”, published September 18, 2013 9:22 AM PDT by Josh Lowensohn, CNET News. Apparently both of them know something hat the rest of us mere mortals in the West don’t know: Chinese Factory Workers.
His secret sauce?
He’s an expert at sniffing out the truth from pictures sent to him. He’s been having been getting pictures of this nature for quite some time from Chinese Sources who purchase the parts directly from factory-line workers and resell them for profit for between $250 to $500. He then contacts them via the Internet and negotiates a price for pictures of the parts when he then posts and makes revenue via advertising on his hugely poplar website named after himself, Sonny Dickson and Sonny Dickson YouTube channel.
He’s been doing this for years according to from Reuters as stated in “Australian teen tests Apple tolerance with new iPhone leak”, published Thursday, Sep 5 2013 By Michael Sin, Reuters. According to Sonny Dickson, quote: “I've been doing this for many years, so I know what looks fake and what's not. I trust what they say to me -- but I also back up the story with other people to make sure what I'm posting is legit”.
Indeed as that's what I’m doing on my personal blog, My Thoughts on Technology and Jamaica, albeit I don’t have nearly as much traffic due to my lack of exclusive content and friendlier interface – and the fact my topics on Telecoms are pretty boring. He on the other hand, has a handle for what’s hot, sticking to posting merely leaked pictures and spends approximately 12 daily doing maintenance on his website, which he claims achieved approximately 1 million hits each month making him a cool US$1,850 (A$2000) in August 2013.
Curiously the Cupertino Kids from Apple are fans of his, as Apple seems to know and hasn't yet spoken to him or raised any objections, despite the possibility of him breaking the Law. Based on his web analytics which he claims has tracked IP addresses from Washington D.C. and Apple's headquarters in Cupertino, California. quote: “Most of the traffic is from the U.S. - I've had 590 hits from Apple and about 53 from U.S. Homeland Security in August”
If these pictures are anything to go by, there may eventually be a Gold Version as well, rounding out the colours for the 9.7” Apple iPad 5 to Space Grey, Silver and Gold like the Apple iPhone 5S as stated in my blog article entitled “Apple has launched the Apple iPhone 5S and 5C on Tuesday September 10th 2013 - Apple iPhone Strategy is to Go Global to beat Samsung”
Additionally, there may also be a multi-coloured Apple iPad Mini coming, all decked out in Blue, Green, Yellow, Red and White as predicted in my blog article entitled “Apple iPhone 5S and Apple iPhone 5C sold 9 million units over the Weekend - Apple beats Wall Street's Great Expectations for Christmas 2013”.
Thus Apple may also be in for Record Weekend Launch Sales for the Apple iPad 5 and the Apple iPad Mini also a follow-on of it’s smartphone parents as stated in my blog article entitled “Apple iPhone 5S and Apple iPhone 5C sold 9 million units over the Weekend - Apple beats Wall Street's Great Expectations for Christmas 2013”.
The Apple iPad 5 and the Apple iPad Mini are slated for a launch sometime in October 2013, most likely Friday October 11th 2013. Stay tuned to this blog for more exciting news on the Apple iPad 5 as it turns over a new Gold coloured and multi-coloured leaf!
