12" iPad Air Plus size gets compared to current Apple devices, leaves a big impression (video)

The potential blueprint for the 12" iPad Air Plus that was published last week pegged Apple's upcoming big tablet at dimensions of 305.31 x 220.8 x 7 mm (12 x 8.7 x .28 inches), meaning it would eventually be big enough to house the purported 12.2-inch display, plus the obligatory home button with TouchID fingerprint scanner.

Out of those leaked schematics, a video has emerged, which shows an iPad Air Plus (or whatever Apple decides to call it), sized up to nearly every contemporary mobile device made by the team from Cupertino that is out there. 

As you can see, Apple's alleged answer to those thin and light computers that are popping up with Intel's new Core M processor this holiday season, or the Chromebooks that are replacing iPads in the education market, is quite big for a mobile device, but it's purpose is to be more of a productive, rather than media consumption device only anyway.

I guess Apple will name it as iPad Pro and put it into a new category. Maybe it got HD retina display which features 5k display which same resolution to the 5k iMac, new OS, 10 hours battery life, dual stereo speaker, and new intel fanless cpu.

note Pro 12 and Surface at least offer multiwindow or split screen....Apple should COPY that multiwindow feature as well in order to use that bigger screen to be more productive not just a bigger toy with bigger icons

"Apple should copy that"? You do realize that multi window implementations weren't just invented for mobile, right? Apple and Microsoft used multiple windows in their OSes before Android even existed, they just haven't implemented them in mobile in their ARM-based OSes.

Should have split screen. Expected to be ridiculously priced.
