12.9-inch Apple iPad Pro reportedly touches down in Apple Stores on November 11th

12.9-inch Apple iPad Pro reportedly touches down in Apple Stores on November 11th
Waiting until that blessed day when you can shell out no less than $799 to pick up the Apple iPad Pro? Well then, you might want to put a circle around November 11th on your calendar. That date, a Wednesday, is said to be when the 12.9-inch slate will be available from the bricks and mortar, and online Apple Stores. November 6th is supposedly the last day of iPad Pro training for Apple Store reps.

Also available on the same date will be the two major accessories for the tablet, the Apple Pencil and the Smart Keyboard. The former will cost you $99, while the latter is priced at $169. The Pencil is essentially a rechargeable stylus for the tablet, and the water-resistant Smart Keyboard is pretty self-explanatory. It also doubles as a stand.

The Apple iPad Pro Wi-Fi only model will be priced at $799 for the 32GB version, and $949 for the unit packing 128GB. The Wi-Fi + LTE model is priced at $1079 for the 128GB variant, which is the only one available. And Apple will be selling an iPad Pro sized Smart Cover to protect your purchase.

265 ppi resolution is just sad for a top-of-the-line tablet (let alone one with a mere 13 inch display).Hopefully Apple at least doubles that resolution in the next whatever-named or sized iPad. I do like the Pencil. Hopefully Apple makes that functional with all iPads, and eventually bundles it with ALL iOS devices. Large reason why I am going to hold my basket of Apple shares for still a few more years.

LOL yea, basket of Apple shares, classic delusional stuff there. Is the yacht still out for repairs or did you just buy another one to replace it?

I don't own a yacht (or even a car). Maybe that is why I CAN buy Apple stock (though was pretty damn cheap when I did buy most). And 'basket' not to be confused with 'truckload'.

Dude, its a 2K display. What more donyou need on a tablet. My Note Pro is 2560x1600. Plentybgood enough. Thats higher than my phone which is 1440p. Its a tablet tgat already costs to much. Its doesnt even donas much a a 42" smart tv for the same price. I play Angry Birds on my smart tv...1080p 2xx PPI. This is Apple we are talking about. You dont get what you pay for, you pay for what you get.

Same here. I wish they would include the Apple Pencil inside the box like Samsung does with the S-Pen, though.

This year. I will have to wait. But next year. I'm planning to get the ipad pro. Since apple not only introduces some other accessories. But other companies made their products for the ipad pro. Like a dockable speakers, tougher casing, and more.

It'll be my next iPad, in about 2 years.

Just take you present ipad and imagine it at 13". Just like the Note Pro 12.2 is over the 10.1. Same thing just slightly larger. But at least the Note Pro gained more function with uts size.

I have a Note Pro 12.2 w/LTE and iPad Air. With the improving features to attach emails I may look at the iPad Pro w/LTE. However, the $1079 is making me think. I have also looked at a Surface Pro, but I want a LTE embedded radio. Office features on Android and iPad's do most of what I need. VLOOK UP's are a nice to have but use those for work and have. HP Revolve 810 for that.

Why buy a cellular enable tablet if you have a cellphone? Just use your Hotspot.

All Samsung tablet are ugly design. That's all I can say. Where in Apple tablet is unique design and some say boring but for me, everything is fine and perfect in daily use.

They should decrease the price by $200. At this price, you could buy a Surface Pro or a MacBook.

They will. By next year. For now. Since december is approaching. Both android, ios and windows device providers are gearing up for sales since many people will buy new devices. And this means. More profit.

Maaaan this thing quite huge, i wonder how well this device sells against declining tablet market.

Huge? Wait for Samsung to one-up this thing like they do with everything Apple introduces.

I really don't see a reason why people would buy this instead of a surface. Surface is a full pc where this is just an ipad, that's like choosing to limit yourself simply because of a brand?

There is a reason, they are stupid.. Anyone who would spend the cost of a PC on a tablet is just stupid. I don't care who much money you have or what brand it is. I made that fatal mistaken with the Note Pro. They just aren't worth the costs. I got mine to draw and have when I go to customer sites. But it's more of a nuisance than a benefit. Something this size should have a desktop os. Period.
