We took a break from reporting iPad Pro-related stories, but it seems that the rumor mill is back at it. According to a fresh report from the far-East Economic Daily newspaper, Apple’s elusive large-screened iPad, dubbed many the iPad Pro, is still on the cards and is aimed for a release before the end of this year.

When compared to rumors relating to the iWatch launch, the iPad Pro seems less real to happen, mainly because there hasn't been any moves from Apple that could suggest that. However, analysts like KGI Securities' Ming-Chi Kuo, believes the iPad Pro could launch sometime next year.

What about you? What's your take on the fabled iPad Pro? Would you be interested in buying it for its extra size or you're good with the current lineup?
