iPad Pro is a Hybrid iPad

A series of predictions by analysts shows that Apple may introduce its 12-inch iPad Pro this year in the fall season. The large screen is the most obvious reminder that Apple is thinking big. It will furthermore contain an A8 processor. In the capacity of a notebook, this model will surely upset the market trends

This was something that Microsoft had been trying to accomplish for a while yet had desperately failed to do. Its Windows 8 platform just couldn’t face the competition. The current plans of Apple have lent ARM a hand since it will be manufacturing the chips in the large screen iPad. And while the processor in a MacBook Air occupies a hefty chunk of the total cost price of building the device, the processor in a 128 GB iPad accounts for a mere 4% in sum of costs to Apple. 

Evercore Partners‘s Patrick Wang writes, “Arriving in fall ‘14, Apple goes Enterprise with an 12” iPad. Powered by the A8 chip (perhaps 4C), this expands ARM’s reach and, once again, transforms the traditional notebook market as we know it.”

Whichever way you look at it, the 12-inch screen remains the most prominent feature of the slated contraption from Apple. This is akin in many ways to the 11.6 inch MacBook Air. Yet of course there are subtle differences. The prognostications point to the fact that it is not just a longer and wider screen that is at stake here. 

Rather Apple has allowed extra space in order to build a hybrid that will be both notebook and tablet in its makeup. That would be a new thing in its own right. And it would thus be an attractive alternative to the pre-existing situation in the market.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
