You'll never guess what tagline Apple is using to market the iPad Pro
The title of this article should not be taken seriously: it's a sarcastic one, because the tagline that Apple is using for the iPad Pro (in a brand new promo video that it just released - see below) is actually easy to guess.

Announced in September, and ready to start shipping this week, the iPad Pro sports a 12.9-inch display, dwarfing both the 9.7-inch iPad, and the significantly smaller iPad mini (which has a 7.9-inch screen). Needless to say, this is the biggest iPad ever, and that's exactly how Apple is presenting the tablet in its newest video: "Introducing the biggest iPad ever." Well, at least customers will know what to expect from the device.

Prices for the iPad Pro start at $799 (32 GB, Wi-Fi only), but, if you want a variant with cellular connectivity, you'll have to pay at least $1,079 (it's true that this one comes with 128 GB of storage space). Additionally, you can buy an Apple Pencil ($99), a Smart Keyboard ($169), and a Smart Cover (starting at $59).

Are you planning to get an iPad Pro? Or is this thing too big for you?

Even some Apple users call this a ripoff.

I'm really shocked if this is true. Apple could start selling bottled water and charge $20 for a 20oz bottle and the iSheep would drink it on up lol.

Literally, they're blatantly lying about the capabilities right here in their website (http://apple.co/1LHJY3a). It states: "Everything you can do on a desktop computer or gaming console is not only possible on iPad Pro, it’s possibly better. While the size and resolution of the display make every activity more immersive, the finely tuned Multi-Touch subsystem and A9X chip mean even the apps you use most will feel like nothing before."

The only thing that has changed is it's f**king HUGE! They should use that tag line for all of their devices actually because of their love of bezels...

How are you going to hold a device that is 10 to 13 inches and not have bezels? Sit down somewhere!!

I was talking about their other devices like the iPhone. Tablet bezels are fine.

I don't see the big deal with having small bezels. This is why not everyone is a product designer. Bezels in my opinion are useful when used correctly. Take a look at the top and bottom bezels of the Iphone and the Sony Xperia Z series. Best phone to hold and watch content and play games in landscape. You need bezels top and bottom for phones and all around for tablets.

Yeah. That's what I'm figuring out too. Watched a YouTube with Erica Griffin about Note 5. Her hands kept touching the screen while trying take pics. Wouldn't function. So some bezel is needed no doubt.

iBS You don't need huge bezel. You need unresponsive on touch 1mm borders on the screen. Samsung figured it out long ago, but apple's propaganda called it : display-borders-gate. LOL

Like TSMan2 wrote, iBS! And hypocritical iBS to boot! I remember seeing several reviews in the past on tablets and phones that competed against the iPad and iPhone that focused on bezel size. At the time, the iPad and iPhone had much smaller bezels, which equaled a higher screen to device ratio, than the competition. This was seen as a plus. Also, Apple introduced palm rejection software (which all tablets and phones have now) to get around the "smaller" bezels on their device. All of the Apple fans praised Apple's designs and the introduction of palm rejection software. Flash forward to today, Apple devices keep essentially the same bezel sizes, while the bezels on other devices got smaller. Now Apple fans don't like smaller bezels and forget about palm rejection software? WTF? Straight hypocrites.

it's a big deal if we are talking about tablets. i prefer bezel on the old iPad, rather than the one on the iPad Air, it's just more comfortable to hold. iPad Air barely has side bezels when holding in potrait.

You don't need huge bezels to obstruct the contend. Or to increase the device size. You need unresponsive on touch border on the screen. Samsung made it long ago.

yes, but the content under the screen where my fingers at cannot be seen. that's why i prefer the old iPad bezels.

You and your FUD. He was talking about a stylus as the primary input device on a phone.

What FUD? Watch the damn video and listen to it from his mouth instead of pulling claims from your behind thinking they'll become fact...
