You'll never guess what tagline Apple is using to market the iPad Pro
posted by Florin T. / Nov 09, 2015, 6:26 PM
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?

The iPad Air is a great device...but the iPad Pro is just fraud.

Even some Apple users call this a ripoff.

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 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.

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.

"Steve was wrong", then pan onto the stylus.
