12.9-inch iPad Coming

Not sure if you guys heard about this yet. But before I close this page down, I thought I would share:

"An unnamed official at a local Apple supplier in Korea told The Korea Times by telephone that Apple's local first-tier display supplier is currently producing a 12.9-inch Retina display for a new "maxi" iPad slated to launch early next year, possibly in March. This panel is being manufactured by the supplier's plant in Korea, the source added.

Rumors of a larger iPad have been floating around for a while, and the device is supposedly part of Apple's goal of breaking from the pattern it created with the iPad and iPhone. Even the Wall Street Journal chimed in on the rumor bandwagon back in July, reporting that Apple was testing larger screens for iPhone and iPad devices, including a 13-inch prototype iPad, to reel in customers who are preferring the larger sizes.

"The 12.9-inch iPad will have improved picture quality. As the Apple partner intends to boost its lineup for displays that have almost ultra high-definition (UHD) quality, the upcoming iPad will provide very clear quality similar to that of UHD," said the official.

Earlier this month, Chinese-based Pad News claimed that longtime Apple manufacturing partner Foxconn is currently testing a new, large-format iPad, supporting either a screen measuring 11.4 inches diagonally or a 12.9-inch screen. The site said the tablet is in an advanced stage of testing, and Apple plans to reveal the device in March."

Huh. For some reason I still don't care.

They've been talking about this rumor for about a year now.

www.macrumors.com is a really good place to keep up with whats going on with apple. Most leaks start there.

Well if they come out with it, I hope it has more features than the current release. Personally I was disappointed with the lack of innovation on the last iPad.

Total girl thing (and way OT) but all I saw was maxi pad. And no I am not referring to a large iPad.

That seems rather big for a tablet. I have the normal iPad and that seems big enough IMO

What apple should do is bring out an iphone with a decent sized screen. Since using a Note 3 for a while, when I hold my old iPhone it feels like a kids toy.

This is why I have a Note 3 instead of a 5s. I love the Note 3 BTW. Much better than the iphone.

I have a Note 2 and am quite pleased as well. Other phones feel dinky after using the Note.

This would be smart move for Apple, but all depends on if the actual released iPad holds up to all the internet hype.
