According to the Digitimes publication, the long-rumored "iPad Pro" project has been put on hold, because of "lack of support from related platform developers and ecosystems". The report says that a 12.9-inch iPad, along with other similarly sized tablets, presents an inferior value proposition to low-cost notebooks and doesnâ€™t come with enough qualitative enterprise applications. And looking at the adoption of Samsung's 12.2-inch tablet, it doesn't seem that the market isn't ready for this new type of devices.
At the moment we don't know if Apple has killed altogether or simply delayed its iPad Pro project, but some industry watchers still believe that development of the tablet is underway. DigiTimes also reported that a 8.9-inch Nexus device is Google's first tablet project for 2014. Will this put further pressure on the iPad?
