Gruber's review. Other than some issues with the keyboard a mostly positive review. That A9X chip is a beast. http://daringfireball.net/2015/11/the_ipad_pro
More praise for the Pencil. http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/gadgets-and-tech/news/ipad-pro-review-is-apples-big-new-tablet-the-best-version-yet-a6730011.html http://mashable.com/2015/11/11/apple-ipad-pro-review/ http://www.digitalartsonline.co.uk/news/creative-hardware/ipad-pro-review-exclusive-look-at-apples-first-ipad-thats-amazing-for-artists-some-designers/
This is from Wired's review (their overall conclusion was positive).This is where I go back to Apple needs to set the narrative and get the messaging right with this device. I'm not convinced Apple is expecting everyone to ditch their laptops for this device (yet) but that's the angle all the reviews I've read so far are taking. John Gruber mentioned that when he gets devices from Apple to review someone from marketing gives him a walk through and basically goes through...
I don't think the review iself was amazing. And the comments are predictible. I'm hoping we get reviews from people who can take advantage of the Pencil and some of the pro apps that support it.
And Joanna Stern from WSJ who not surprisingly says it won't replace her laptop yet. I don't think reviewers get it. No this device probably won't replace PCs for people who haven't grown up in a mobile first world. And that's OK. It's not like Apple has stopped selling Macs. https://t.co/FPae4oCCTW The Verge gives it an 8.7. Pencil getting high marks in all reviews I've read so far. http://www.theverge.com/2015/11/11/9705966/apple-ipad-pro-review
I guess the reviews are starting...here's one from Ben Bajarin. https://techpinions.com/the-ipad-pro-the-start-of-something-new/42336
Yes, yes and yes. I've said it before and I'll say it again (and I'm not the only one): right now Apple is good at telling us the what (Schiller) and the how (Ive) but the why is missing. Give us the reason why this exists (other than iPad sales have been declining and Apple had to do something to try and stop the decline).
No sorry. We don't need Apple executives to tell us that iPad Pro is also good for consuming. That's a big fat DUH. We need them to bang it over people's heads why it's MORE than just a consumption device because the narrative is its just a bigger iPad. And it doesn't have an exposed file system, can't run "full" Office or Photoshop so it isn't for professionals. Don't assume that people get it. Sometimes you have to teach and explain. Sometimes over and over and over.
He's a supply chain analyst making guesses but every time he puts out a research note rumor sites treat it as some big major story.
Kuo does not have a strong track record.
