This is from 2012. Fast forward 3 years and here we are...
Apple shamelessly copy Samsung and sell its Apple Pencil at $99. While Samsung gives you Spen for free which come with the tablet itself. After the keyboard trend, now its the pen.
I think Tim cook is gone crazy! I cant understand this product purpose. If it was and Intel core m with an OSX upon, it would be defendebale with this price tag, but not now.
With Apple so-called 3D Touch, think using an iPad Pro are at risk.
Why? In order to max it 3D ability, one cannot apply a Temper Glass or any thick screen protector to protect the huge LCD screen. Think this would be a disaster for who, who frequently drop any devices. An iPad Pro was so huge, it's likely people drop it more often, and with it super heavy 1.5lb+ weight, dropping it mean more impact = more damages.
It'll sell. More than Samsung Tabs, More than surface. Why cause its apple and really people dont need more justifcation than that. There is brand loyalty, eco system and a ton apps and support which will come along the way... Enjoy
Anonymous, 09 Sep 2015omg a pen & a big screen huh apple's gone 2 far lol should i call that a copy or an origin... moreCopy other company>tell everyone they invent it>sue the other company that copy the stuff they copied. Typical Apple business module.
aussiehk, 10 Sep 2015For those who don't want ANYTHING to do with Windows, this is the right alternative. I gave up... moreIt's not about having anything to do with windows, it's about the fact that Windows's selection of applications is times higher than iOS's. It's about the fact that you can run full Office, full photoshop, full PC games up to 2012-2013 and not some dumbed down apps from the App store. You also get all the good apps from the App store in the Windows store, and you save $100 on the stylus.
Also, how can you not want to do anything with windows? Are you running OS X or something? Tried it on my PC, I went back to windows in under two days. It's only good for creativity apps(all of which are also on windows), for anything else it's selection of applications is laughable, the interface is clunky and unintuitive, all around terrible experience. Windows is much, much superior in any way.
Soooo a ARM Cortex A72 based SoC vesus an Intel i5.... and most likely even pricier than the Surface... No thanks.
its basically the same thing as the microsoft surface
i'm pretty interested in the surface before, but this ipad pro really makes me torn between those two.
in my opinion, the surface win because it have the trackpad, something that i notice is missing from ipad pro's cover. it will be really usefull and practical to select things in precision while typing.
and surface's kickstand rocks! with the multiple angle selection, it leaves the ipad pro by a mile away
Just watched the press event and the Ipad pro is quite a capable tablet. Hate all you want people, but this tablet was really done well.
TheNeighbor, 09 Sep 2015Samsung had already done a 12" tablet that does 4 split screens, and comes with a digitiz... moreOh look whining fan from the neighbour... Dont buy it if u not gonna use it, it is for niche market ;p
TheNeighbor, 10 Sep 2015Not even comparable to a Surface Pro at all! Surface Pro 3 is a FULLY pledged WINDOWS 10 with ... moreSo what? Funny thing is even iOS beats the crap out of ur full wondows 10 ;p 8GB? Who need that? If ur system is efficient and no lag? Oh wait u r an android fan arent u? Lol
Marcell, 09 Sep 2015There's a Surface PRO with an i5 and 128 GB for a lower price than this thing with 128GB. And... moreFor those who don't want ANYTHING to do with Windows, this is the right alternative. I gave up on Windows many many years ago and only need to put up with it at work.
Each to their own I say.
Samsung wannabe much. Apple, the smartphone made in China and true copycat company. Invent useless thing like Force Touch and over exagerate its usage like crazy. Improve your battery Tim Cook!
sasano, 10 Sep 2015A copy from Microsoft surface pro 3 :DNot even comparable to a Surface Pro at all! Surface Pro 3 is a FULLY pledged WINDOWS 10 with up a Core-i7 processor and 8GB RAM, not this iOS crap.
bunna, 09 Sep 2015samsung is laggy and cant compare in term of quality material with ipad. and this ipad isnt ... moreHahaha... quality material without the productivity what even a Surface 3 can offer with full Windows 10.
