Rumor: A Maxi 12.9 inch iPad in the works?
Apple is apparently going from Mini to Maxi. New information relayed by the Korean website ETNews.com showcases a new project popping up in the Apple garden. This time we’re not talking in shrunken parameters, but in maximized ones.
According to the publication, the Cupertino tech giant is working on an iPad Maxi. This obviously means that users might soon see on the market a tablet with a larger (12.9-inch) diagonal screen. Basically more room to do everything – Apple is trying to optimize gaming experience and video streaming. The tech giant is reportedly thinking of increasing tablet screen size due to the substantial competition provided by Ultrabooks lately. The information has been obtained from sources familiar with the matter who have received information from inside Apple’s manufacturing partners in Korea.
The information is a little bit puzzling especially if one sits down and analyzes the current Apple table trends. The latest addition to the tablet gang – the iPad Mini, has been received extremely well by the public. In fact, it has been embraced so easily, that the shrunken spawn managed to cannibalize the market share of the fully fledged iPad. Now, recent rumors seem to indicate that Apple is willing to drop the price of the future iPad Mini even more. Can a maxi iPad fit into this picture?
And if Apple wants to compete with Ultrabooks, doesn’t it have the MacBook Air line already? Why build a larger tablet and hassle developers with re-designing apps to fit such a stretched out screen? But who knows, as more details are added to this first rumor the scenario might start to make actual sense.

Hmm, I'm not sure that appeals to me, that's quite a big screen to hold and presumably a bit of a weight penalty.......so I'll probably buy one!!
You'll have to buy two, so you aren't leaning to one side when walking. You have to keep the weight balanced, you see.

I'm all about larger screens and that's why phones just don't cut it for me. But, the current full size iPad happens to be the perfect blend of size and portability, IMO. Goldilocks would be proud. It's just right. I can't see what I'd do with a larger iPad. Ill stick with the current sized models.

I've never lined up at an Apple store for a purchase before. I might if that came out. Just a rumour?...Could very well happen. Nothing was introduced in the usual March-April cycle of "something new". And there have been hints that Apple will provide something interesting "in the northern hemisphere fall". I see that quite marketable for someone to use at home on a comfortable sofa not having to poke a finger at tiny little squares just to log in. And the videos... Books... Yeah I think

I might buy one for home use, if true.
A bigger screen would be handy as long as I can still carry from room to room. I don't hold my current iPads anyway -- I have stands for that. As long as it fits on this, I'm good: Amazon.com: LEVO Deluxe iPad Floor Stand for all iPads Galaxy Xoom Nook and Other eBooks and Tablets: Computers & Accessories
Apparently this is the new holder for it http://www.amazon.com/Trademark-Tool...assive+trolley
