My thoughts exactly. They need a bigger iphone a lot more than a bigger iPad.

 

I agree but working on both devices is a good idea. I am very pro choice regarding screen sizes.

Yet, what I have stated doesn't really sound too radical, hey I'm not proposing the new SCSI or other latest and greatest protocol, I am just hitting on some feature sets that have been requested time and time again. Ok, take the whole pretentious "Pro" designation out of the equation and rather think of what I humbly mentioned as the iPad f'n kick ars edition.
Go ahead, fire at will:D

 

I am shooting you down just for mentionning SCSI  :-)

Thanks for bringing back all of my custom PC's memories from the 90's.

Hell, I remember getting a Glyph technologies CD-r SCSI drive in the mid nineties. It was a 2x read/write...or something like that...cost around $500-700 I recall. I also remember getting the Seagate Baracuda 4 GB internal SCSI drive around the same time...that was major stuff, that is one thing I like about the here and now...technology leaps and gains!

But Apple isn't. They have to perceive a strong market in order to branch out. That market doesn't seem to be here.

 

Maybe it's a calculated leak to get Samsung busy wasting time on Giant Tablets.  ;)

Already have.

 
Unlike yourself, I don't see Apple killing off their laptops. 

 

That’s fine. I’m personally unsure how you can see a simultaneous future for the tablet and the laptop–two portables that do the same thing in the same industries–but that’s just me.

You’re right. And you’re right.

I'll up the anti. My first 20 Mb hard drive cost $485. Based on my salary at the time that would be about $1500 in todays dollars.

If they can get it to roughly the weight of the iPad 2, it's a goer.

A 13" iPad has almost double the screen area, weight tends to track screen area, so it would be close to about double the weight of an iPad air. A bit less since some components don't need an increase.   They could probably do it a little under 2lbs.

But it isn't just weight that makes something unwieldy, the larger size would exert more leverage, it is less portable, more of a handful.  It just seems to inelegant and pointless.

Unless Apple is building a true convertible (with keyboard/mouse capability, file system access), 13" seems too big for the current capabilities.

Panasonic made one, with 2 hour battery life. No typo here
