WSJ: Apple iPad Pro to come with USB 3.0 port, rapid charging, and optional keyboard
posted by Daniel P. / Mar 05, 2015, 2:09 AM
It turns out that Apple is thinking to go with the flow, and include a good ol' USB 3.0 port on the tablet, which would be really earth shattering, given Apple's knack for proprietary connectors. "Apple has continued to rework some of the features of the larger iPad. It is now considering the faster technology for data synchronization between the larger iPad and other computing devices," tipped the insiders. "Apple is also working on technology to speed up the iPad charging time, but it remains uncertain if the final design will have these new features."
Now, whether the USB 3.0 port will be in addition to the Lightning port that Apple's new tablets are equipped with, remains to be seen, but apparently the iPad Pro will also have optional keyboard and mouse, too. These alleged changes, together with the rumored stylus that Apple is said to supply with the tablet, pour more water in the rumor mill that pegs the Apple iPad Pro as a more professionally-oriented device than the consumer-centric Apple slates so far. In the meantime, check out these 3D renders of the iPad Pro from the venerable Martin Hajek, made before the USB 3.0 port rumors kicked in.

The stylus for all large screened Samsung devices and support is really what sets it apart. Sure there are other flagships around the 5 inch range, but nothing in the android space can really touch the Note series

Are you really hurt? Apple just got inspired from Note Series. Samsung released the Note Pro 12.2 which is awesome. So what about S6? Only the Downside looks like the iphone 6. So what about is dual toned colours? Edge Display? Corning Gorilla Glass 4? 14nm Exynos 7420? 3GB of LPDDR4 RAM? Amoled Display? You sheep will say that these are also from Apple iphone 6. Pathetic why only 1GB of RAM in late 2014? Why doesn't your shepherd provide an Extra Gig of RAM and ability to customize? Heck you cannot even apply a live wallpaper! First of All Apply a Live Wallpaper to your iCrap Device and come back.

Don't be so rude with him because you'll hardly hurt his butt. I totally agree with you. The galaxy s6 does not even look like iphone 6, except the downside with the speakers. It is just the iphone 6 which looks like the samsung ativ s. The UFS memory technology, LPPD4 RAM technology, the first 14 nm efficient mobile processor, turning on the phone in 7 seconds and all the rest.All these technologies will be ignored by all Apple fanboy and Samsung haters. Even 8 years old kids don't act like that.

USB 3.0 port looks really ugly. Now that USB Type C is available, there is absolutely no reason to go for the 3.0 port.

Unless this came with a power saving broadwell chip + OSX suppert I don't see why anyone will buy this when the Surface 3 Pro is such a better deal.

By the time this comes out (which they keep saying it will come out every year) USB 3.0 will be the loser charger and everyone will be on usb 4.0. But if you keep reporting the same stupid thing every year it will eventually come out much like the iphone plus you will EVENTUALLY be right.. right iphonearena?
