MS Surface Pro 3 is already 12", along with Samsung Galaxy Pro and probably others.

I can see the benefit of having a bigger screen for productivity. Since MS Surface Pro is working on complete desktop replacement and with MS strength in productivity, I can see Surface Pro 3 become a 12 inches tablet/ laptop. For iPad, I am not sure people buy it for productivity (except artist). Some of the key purposes include newspaper/ magazine readers, Internet Browsing, FBing and gaming. A bigger screen doesn't trump a lighter weight in these application. Unless Apple figure out a way to strengthen its productivity application and reducing the weight of battery, I simply don't see Jumbo iPad has an advantage over the others.

What will be the key reasons you would rather own a Jumbo iPad?

Quite agree. One shies away from using tablet for business purpose becauase the screen is just too small to concentrate..also keypad on touch screen is quite uncomfortable if you got to key in many times with conenctration..if its just casual chat then its fine... a big screen wil definitely work out positive but there must be a way to connect IR keyboard or USB keboard if you wnat to sit and write a proposal or make a presentation and it must be glitch free...

I think larger iPad make sense only for those who wants to own a device for entertainment purpose. Larger iPad, if become bulky then will not serve much purpose. The tablet market has become kind of stagnant due to the same reason that netbook became obsolete. The consumer market is too crowded.

iPad is for content consumption

I find my iPad is great for content consumption including streaming video, spreadsheets and presentations.  I make minor tweaks on a presentation on the airplane to an event.  It also actually is usable on an airplane in peasant class.

For content creation, I use my MacBook Pro.  The iPad just is not suited for creating major content.

With a larger screen, if you add a Bluetooth keyboard, you have a very capable setup for content creation as well as consumption.

I'm sure that Apple is responding to the Surface Pro 3. And too, we're seeing the beginnings of a predictable shift away from laptops, to these more capable tablets. Interfaces such as USB 3.0 would make attaching bigger or even multiple displays possible, and of course also real keyboards and mice, without having to resort to a proprietary docking station.

Makes sense to me. Smaller tablets may still have a market, though.

Except in developed markets tablet sales are flat and laptops are doing okay. When you add all the peripherals you mention its not really a tablet but a laptop with a detachable keyboard. If the battery life is there ... Give me windows so I have the option of real work.
