Next up is the Ipad Pro from Apple. The new Ipad Pro is a much larger beast than its predecessors. It has a 12.9 inch diagonal screen size with 5.6 million pixels.
This new Ipad will allow its users to multi-task. They demo’ed this by inviting Microsoft up on stage and they showed off Microsoft Office for the Ipad Pro. They showed Excel, Word, and Power Point running seamlessly together.
Also demo’ed with Microsoft Office was the new Apple Pencil which is a more precise stylus that is boasted to be so precise that it can fill in one pixel at a time. The pen can also be charged by plugging it into the Ipad Pro.
Also new for the Pro is a physical keyboard/cover (very similar to Microsoft’s Surface Pro’s) that plugs into the pad.
The Ipad Pro has a new A9-X chip that is 1.8 times faster than the A8. It has a 4 speaker stereo system built right in.
The pro will cost $799 for 32 Gigs, and $949 for 128 Gigs, not 64 gigs though. The pen will cost $99 and the Keyboard will cost $169.
