    Hello, I am a happy owner of Galaxy Note PRO 12.2 but I am considering to buy an iPad Pro. I have some questions:

    1. Am I correct that the 10.5" and 12.9" models both have the same updated hardware except the size?

    2. Given that the 10.5" model has thinner bezels, how is it compared with the screen size of the 12.9" model? Do the screen size and contents/letters of both models look very similar but the 12.9" model have larger bezels and heavier?

    3. One of the issues people talked about in the past is that iOS devices do not have a file system like Mac OS/Windows. With the new iOS 11, it seems that this issue is addressed. With the new iOS, we can manipulate files on the iPad like the Mac and PC. Am I correct?

    4. I have a Wacom Intuos Pro (medium size), how is the new iPad Pro compared with it in terms of functionality as a tablet/pen? If I buy an iPad Pro, I will use it as a tablet and also as a second screen.

    1. Yes although ram is unconfirmed it'll most likely be 4gb in both models
    2. The 12.9 inch is still a noticeably larger screen with more workspace. I need to see the 10.5 inch in person before I decide if its become large enough for my workflow.
    3. Files has solved that issue in iOS 11. Not only can you manage local files, the app will also connect to basically any app that'll support it so it will be a central place to manage ALL your files. Very nice
    4. Not to poop on Wacom but the Apple Penicl is F***** amazing, wether your going to draw or use it to take notes. In AstroPad people use it to draw in desktop photoshop from what I've seen the lag is essentially nonexistent.

    Thanks. I went to big Apple Store today but they don't have any product announced yesterday in the store. The 12.9" version could be a nice GPS for my car.

    I cannot understand why Apple does not make rose pink version of the 12.9" model. I don't want to buy it now and few months later, they make the rose pink version available.

    Anybody succeed in using AstroPad in Windows and use multi-touch or pen to manipulate objects in SolidWorks and/or Autodesk Inventor?

    When shall we expect 3D touch be available on the iPad PRO?
