Replacing the 11" Macbook Air with a large iPad? Nope. Makes zero sense.

LOL? The MacBook Air is the best selling Mac model - probably by a long way these days. A larger iPad is conceivable, but there's no way they'd drop the MBA from the line up.

Would love to hear some reasons why they would make a larger screen iPad.

My guesses are to work towards integrating iOS and os x, to offer more variety, and to produce large screen devices that can be used by multiple users at a time. Maybe they even want to keep getting bigger and bigger and produce all sizes of touch screen devices?

Maybe they should just use the space on the current iPad better by like say having the ability to see more than 9 icons per folder at a time lol

They likely know that most people with iPads use them at home, and so they may as well come to market with a larger one before their competition does so they don't have to play catch up like in the phone market

It'll look like an iPhone but bigger and wider.

Oh really.. what size issues exactly is that? My eyesight is quite fine and I need to cringe everytime I try to read something on my iPhone. Too damn small and it causes eyestrain for prolonged use.

Can't see any reason why would I need giant pocket or handbag for a larger phone. Even my friends' SGS3 or HTC One fits most pocket just fine. So maybe it's you who have "size" issue?

Why wait if the larger screen is so important to you ?
Because I'm under contract and locked into the ecosystem.

More uneducated guesses from reliable sources, yay!

It's the Nostradamus effect. Make enough predictions and some are bound to come true. They've only been claiming a larger iPad is coming since shortly after the original one was released in April of 2010.

You're a little late with that prediction. That was all the rage here about 2 years ago.

If they really are working on a larger screen iPad, I'm thinking the reason is to give the iPad a larger screen.

Fair enough. Thought there might be more behind it.

I'd take the reports with a grain of salt. I remember reports also saying that Apple will use ARM processors for future notebooks. I'm pretty sure that they won't force an integration, especially after Cook's quote in the October event about windows 8 PCs/tablets.

I wish Macrumors would offer a bit of editorial comment when posting items like this. Pretty sure they used to. Posting of weird rumours with no comment doesn't do much for their credibility.

New iPhone in May is ridiculous, at least let people have the 5S for a year before it becomes "out of date".

12.9" iPad would be good if Apple adds active digitiser support.
If they don't, I don't really see the point.

The Airs are very, very popular, would be silly to nix the 11" for a larger iPad.

Why do you say that? They would presumably all be running the same OS, from the same vendor.

Not this again!!!

People always think when a new phone is released, their current one somehow stops functioning. Relax guys, it's just a phone.

You mean 2880P? The current 13" already has 1440P. It would have to be a substantial increase to warrant this new product.

I didn't even read the article, and just (visually) scanned for Digitimes. Didn't bother to read the rest.
