Apple iPad Pro release date listed as November 13th by Sam's Club

Apple iPad Pro release date listed as November 13th by Sam's Club
Although it was officially unveiled more than a month ago, and the complementary Apple Pencil has been at the center of numerous discussions in the past few weeks, the Apple iPad Pro has yet to become commercially available. 

While the manufacturer has yet to make any concrete release date announcement, it looks like Sam's Club has recently left cat slip from its bag.

Yesterday, Sam's Club started accepting Apple iPad Pro pre-orders. The retailer opened up pre-sales for both Wi-Fi only versions of the productivity-oriented iPad Pro, but not for the only cellular version of the slab. The 32GB Wi-Fi only iPad Pro was priced at $789 while the 128GB version was priced at $949. Both prices are $10 lower than what Apple asks for the same versions. In the meantime, stocks have been depleted by Sam's Club, but the discount wasn't the interesting part of the story.

The retailer also said that the Apple iPad Pro will start shipping on November 13th. We've previously heard that the Apple iPad Pro will be available in Apple Stores starting November 11th, but this has yet to be confirmed. As a side note, November 11th is Veteran's Day in the US, and historically, companies avoid launching new products on holidays.

MacMall also opened up for iPad Pro pre-orders, but the retailer says that the tablets will be ready to ship on November 15th.

What do you guys think? Will you get the iPad Pro once it becomes available for purchase, or do you find that the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 is the productivity tablet to beat at the moment?
