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?

People are much better off with an ipad air 2 at this point. Features all of the same ios 9 (except the pencil, lol) features and it has strong horsepower at a much better price.

i'm excited to see the new ipad pro used at weddings so that people can't even see any of the bride and groom anymore. seriously i like the device but the price is madness and I'm not willing to take the plunge until there is a deal for one.

Great device. Owners are going to be happy and laugh about all the negative comments, of course it will have flaws, but we ain't talking about something mandatory

Even the Note Pro is better.

I don't think I'll be investing into the iPad Pro.. I don't think it's designed to be used at home Asa consumption device, but as a professional device in the field and not as a consumption device as I said, but a PROductive device for PROffecionals. That's why they packed it with 4GB of ram and gave it bigger battery and still allow for 128gb storage and a versatile standalone stylus that mimics real design tools with ability to charge in 15 seconds. The only thing I was disappointed was that Apple pencil doesn't work with current iPads - otherwise it would be a sale and my other pens and brushes would go on eBay (which I spent more money on than the cost of Apple pencil). I might get the iPad in the future but only if I find that my iPhone or my current iPad setup isn't adequate anymore in my line of work.

If you want a PROductive device for PROffesionals, you buy a Surface PRO. The iPad Pro couldn't even compete with a Surface Pro, so how is it going to compete with a real laptop? I am not an iPad fan. To me Android tablets have a lot more going for them than the iPad ever had, unless you want good looking expensive accessories that don't do much but pump up your low self esteem. However, I will give props to Microsoft for producing a better overpriced and overhyped device than Apple produced. If I am going to waste the money on a useless device, it might as well be the one that is the least useless (Surface Pro).

Nothing is good for you is it? I cannot operate with the defeciencies of android device. But both of our opinions are subjective so both mean nothing. My only argument is - if android tablet is so much better than the useless iPad, how come iPad is used by so much more people today (including those that own android phone, like some android users even here on PA)? Oh that's right they're ALL sheep, right? And they ALL bought iOS device to boost their self astern... There no way that all these people prefer iOS over android - they're all dumber than you and don't know better. Thanks for your Devine input.

Add those prices up for a surface with the i5 which is what you want if you're going to be doing some serious work. You might as well buy a decent dedicated Windows laptop for much cheaper.

what a stupid comment. even with today's flagship prices, like Samsung's, you could get a decent notebook. heck, even tablets cost much less than smartphones while getting a lot more. but would you trade your smartphone for a notebook? or for a tablet? of course not, different device, different matter.

You're looking at a total of $1407 before taxes for the 128 GB LTE model with all the accessories mentioned above. It's definitely a big investment, but you need a bif investment for the biggest IPad ever! (Snickers) I've never had an iPad, Android is my cup of tea but there is nowhere enough tablet apps for the Android tablets. They're just the phone version bigger for the most part. I rarely touch my pc anymore since having a smartphone, since the majority of the stuff I do is on my phone: web browsing, downloading videos. I do transfer my videos onto my PC then watch on my TV from my PC.

I would get one but for 1000 bucks for cellular I don't think I'll be buying it anytime soon either. I'm quite happy with the iPad Air I have still. Maybe I'll wait till it's a year old my iPads don't have to be as blazing fast to me as the phone does since I can't carry it everywhere like my phone.

"iPad Pro- it may look like a competitors device on the surface.. But deep down inside it's just the biggest iPad mini we ever made.

He was also talking about stylus for tablets, have a look for yourself instead of guessing: https://youtu.be/w2xPt8txgGs

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...

oh i didn't know this one. i was referring to the one when he introduced the original iPhone. but then i think Steve was talking stylus as the primary input method.

23. AlikMalix unregistered

He was talking about a stylus as a primary input device, not the s-pen or Apple pencil - he was talking about PDA's which depended on a stylus or a pointing device in order to get anything done without pressing wrong things all the time. THATS WHAT HE WAS TALKING ABOUT. I always loved the notes s-pen and the features they built into note 4/5. And the minimal latency.. But it's not needed as many even on PA will tell you that they don't use it often - and that kind of stylus is not what Steve was talking about. He even mentioned that we should use the pointing device we all have - our fingers... Why do you guys keep twisting this into something that it never was?

I know the haters are annoying but... Recently you are bringing in too much effort to defend Apple stuff, chill out dude.

I think the number of fanboys on both sides in the site are almost equal. Anyways, the stylus would've much better if it didn't require you to charge it every now and then.

iBS All the apple's propaganda and you iBoys were attacking Note , and mocking at it. LOL Now you changed the tune. Like about the bigger display phones, and the smaller tablets. St.Jobs is always right , even if speaks BS. Right?
