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 weâ€™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 â€“ 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 Appleâ€™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 â€“ 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, doesnâ€™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.
