I'm rather curious about how much will it cost, start with USD 599 or more?

iPredict the future of pads is the Mini and the Maxi, the Air will be pushed out... it's kinda too big to be portable and too small to be useful. The Mini and Maxi are the right sizes imo. Mini pad on the road, Maxi pad on the end table at home.
I personally am waiting for a sweet hybrid convertable ultrabook that has windows and android with a decent price. Ya, I'm looking at you ATIVQ but not at those prices

There's some bay trail ones coming out for like $400-$500 soon.

I wouldn't be surprised it the device was aimed at business / power users.
This device is clearly meant to replace a laptop. Apple came out with a 64-bit processor, it now has the internal space to pack some aggressive hardware. The bigger size helps with the device getting hot due to more surface area.
I would guesstimate the device with start with 64 GB of storage at a price of $799.

I want to be a millionaire, so can I bet anyone a couple of million that none of those 3 things are going to happen with the exception of the iPhone 6 in August/September.

An even larger ipod touch! That's absolutely revolutionary!

maybe they named the ipad 5 as ipad air beacause they want to name this ipad pro

I could see this working if they sell it Transformer-style with a keyboard dock. There's been speculation elsewhere that by taking the Air name, iPad ought to push into laptop territory.

I think you're on to something. I believe this is why Apple went with 64 bit chips in the iPhone and ipad. They are preparing to come out with a tablet that can convert to a full blown computer. Will it replace the MacBook Air is the question.
