I have an iPod in my pocket that I use like a watch. Works fine, though I do have to reach into my pocket for the iPod, rather than glance at something mounted on my wrist. Perhaps Apple has not released a smart watch because it can't be made to make sense for most consumers. Then again, maybe Apple knows how to make a device that does work out. We shall see.
They wouldn't be thinking that once they started using it. A 40-percent bigger hand-held device doesn't sound to me like something anyone would be happy with. Too cumbersome, too heavy. Even with technologies allowing for lighter devices, relative to size, you'd still be talking about a device weighing more than the current iPad by a significant amount. No matter what technology you use, a bigger device is a bigger device and can't help but feel less comfortable to hold...
You lost me at primary computing device.
I have to admit that I thought there was no point to the iPad Mini and was quite wrong about that one. Yet, my argument would be that the case for a bigger iPad is a weak one. If you're going to go there, the Air makes a whole lot more sense. Th 9.7-inch form factor would be just about perfect were the device in question significantly lighter than the current iPad. A significantly larger tablet would suffer from being about the same in price as the Air yet limited in...
If increasing resolution causes more strain on the battery, increases the cost of the screen, taxes the processor, etc. is it not logical that there would have to be a benefit justifying such a move? Since there is none, it begs the question, why do it? The iPad needs more battery life and less weight far more than it does additional screen resolution. For that matter, it doesn't need more screen resolution. It could benefit from more efficient screen technology and is...
Tim Cook has made a reference to October as a month to expect significant product announcements. My recollection is that is was during a media Q and A following a quarterly report. 
What's especially amusing about downgradng Apple for failing to do more than release iPhone updates last week is that we were told months ago by Mr. Cook that announcements about innovative products would be comng in October. Even so, we've gotten in the interim revisions shipping for the iPhone and an early unveiling of an upcomng major overhaul of the Mac Pro. I suspect Apple did an uncharacteristic early reveal of the Mac Pro to keep the natives calm while the company...
The timing of Apple's product releases has been historically about bringing a product to market when it's ready and not a second before. It's not about doing it the other way around, namely setting a date for a product release internally and then introducing it to market, ready or not.    It's not just about how good the product is in isolation but also what happens when customers start using the device or software, as in, does it enhance their lives, or something of...
The Macbook Pro with Retina display comes with flash storage and no optical drive. What's left to move towards an Air design? You need power to properly run a Retina display on a laptop and as such an Air with Retina display would be precisely what the Pros with Retina have become. Maybe in time the Pro with Retina models can shed some weight but that's all that can be done quite simply because that's all current technology will allow.
It's all about the user experience. If this product is as enjoyable to use as a larger IPad, it begs the question, why even have the bigger iPad. Even if the user experience is only marginally diminished due to the smaller screen, the advantages of a smaller form factor would cause this to become the model of choice for most consumers.
