“Apple Inc. has been rumored to be working on a larger iPad for more than 18 months,” Louis Bedigian reports for Benzinga.
“Sean Udall, CIO of Quantum Trading Strategies and author of The TechStrat Report, thinks a large iPad is headed to retail,” Bedigian reports. “Udall told Benzinga that business users ‘want a product [with] a bigger display.’ Udall said he wouldn’t want to work all day on the current iPad, but there are many individuals who use it instead of a laptop or some other device. ‘There are millions of people, like drug reps, who basically do their entire job on an iPad,’ he said. ‘I think anybody using the iPad, especially if you use it all day for business purposes, a bigger iPad would just make more sense. It would give more functionality, a bigger screen. If you want to show a group of people the screen to display something, it’s just easier to see.'”
“In time, Udall believes Apple will eliminate the iPad mini. When the 12-inch iPad arrives, the standard, 10-inch model would become the smaller unit, minus the “Mini” branding,” Bedigian reports. “He also speculated that Apple may release a phone that is one size bigger in the next year or two, which would be another blow to the iPad mini.”
