After all the rumors about the iPad Mini 2, iPad 5 and iPhone 5S, it’s time for a new product to enter the scene. Supposedly, Apple is making a mega iPad with a 12.9 inch display, ready for a 2014 release and meant to beat the ultrabook segment.
The current full size iPad measures 9.7 inch in diagonal, so this is quite a jump. There are some users out there who have expressed their desire to get a larger iPad, although smaller screens seem to be the way to go these days, with successful 8 inch and 7 inch slates out there. ETNews.com is behind this leak and they don’t have a solid track record, so don’t bet on this product.
The iPad Maxi sounds like an enterprise product and if it’s bundled with a security and Office solution, it may just become a Windows 8 killer and ultrabook killer. The key here is to make the big tablet lighter and more compact, in spite of its huge diagonal. Would you buy such a tablet?
