New Concept Makes The Case For A 12.9-Inch iPad Pro [Gallery]

Would you want an iPad this big?

Of all the Apple rumors out there, one that comes from particularly far out in left field is the iPad Pro. There have been some reports that Apple is planning to release a larger tablet, but nothing substantial.

Like always, that hasn’t kept concept designers from imagining what a 12.9-inch, bezeless iPad Pro could look like. This one comes from the same people behind the Apple TV touch remote concept from last week.

There is a Mac for Pros, a MacBook for Pros, but we’re still waiting for an iPad Pro – but that may change in 2014. Samsung has the GALAXY NotePRO 12.2 and Asus is as well working on larger tablets, mainly to address businesses and graphic designers, who usually choose graphic tablets from Wacom. A larger iPad would combine both tablet and computer functions.

The concept includes Touch ID with an insane 4K resolution of 3,072×2,304 pixels at 298 ppi. While the device looks good, it’s hard to imagine a world in which we carry around iPads that are larger than the base MacBook Air model, right?

    This looks ridiculous. Apple won’t be doing this.

    I don’t really believe in such a device, but why shouldn’t Apple test-drive? Didn’t they come up with devices nobody thought they would need before? ;)

    Nice wallpaper however. Any idea where I might get this for my iPad Air? :)

    I like the idea. This must be a new MacBook Air, for me the mechanical keyboard must be removed and anyone who like can connect an external one.
