Apple's New iPads: 7 Predictions

Look for Apple to revise the full-size iPad and the iPad Mini later this month. Here's what we expect -- and what we don't.

Earlier this year, The Wall Street Journal suggested that Apple is testing devices with different screens. Apple is looking at bigger screens for not only its iPhones but for its iPad line, too. One of the test panels ordered by Apple measures almost 13 inches. Does this mean we'll soon see an iPad Mega alongside the regular iPad and iPad Mini? Probably not this year. The appeal of a tablet with such a large screen is questionable. The iPad Mini is already cannibalizing sales of the full-size iPad because it is smaller and easier to carry around. An iPad with a 13-inch screen would be unwieldy at best, though it could serve as a better laptop or desktop replacement.

re: Apple's New iPads: 7 Predictions
"Coming Soon" is Growing Tired. Jobs got away with that stuff for years. Take away the Apple groupies Apple is just another player in an ever expanding field. Users and investors can not ignore the amazing other player. Samsung, Moto, Nokia and the key player Microsoft are all gaining share. Microsoft is the true to be taken seriously. The Surface not only gives the youth market and casuals what an iAnything gives, Microsoft appeals and delivers the breath of users needs. The keyboard, the tent, loaded with "Office" and does it all. Samsung delivered all those things APPLE has been promising. With the purchase of Nokia and the ability to load the important stuff you may expect MS and Google to own a bigger share of market within year.
Apples hubris is no longer appreciated. $700.00 never again. Who knows MS may be only a $50,00 stock in a year but investors will be content.
Look at their aquisitions. And Google will hit $1200. by Q4 of 14. See the puts for next months.

All this growth has been around all the other companies lately. Look at the space in your Verizon , AT&T and the others. Very telling stuff. Adults will prevail. Microsoft must guard against getting too pricey... GOOGLE should win with the casual, bottom feeders and is a retail value.
