iPad Pro rumours and the probable specifications. This article is based on the report by Evercore Analyst Patrick Wang

Apple’s upcoming 12-inch iPad pro will be a iPad / hybrid computer.

As per the latest news coming from the supply chains and as per speculations from various analysts, Apple is all set to marry the MacBook Air and the iPad. The rumours are pointing to a 12 – inch iPad with advanced software and hardware features which is supposed to give much higher level of performance than the current generation of iPads.

Apple has already released 64 Bit A6 processors for mobile devices which has a much higher processing power than the previous generation of chipsets. Along with the newly added M7 co-processor, the stakes has been raised to an all new level.

What the analyst's are saying

But now as per Evercore Partners analyst Patrick Wang, Apple is all set to launch iPad Pro this fall. This device is supposed to blur the line between traditional notebooks and tablets. As per the report at Barrons, Wang has predicted that Apple will launch an iPad with bigger screen size, targeting enterprise customers. As per Wang this device will be very much like the Microsoft's Surface tab, which have a Intel processor. He thinks that this iPad pro will be a notebook plus tablet hybrid, targeting the enterprise customers.

Wang comments were mostly centered around treat on Intel. Along with this upcoming device, Apple will also launch it's new quad core A8 processor, which as per Wang will open the floodgates against Intels chip buisness. He pointed out that Intel's CPU represents a significant portion of the cost of laptop. He supplemented his analysis with the bill of materials of Macbook Air with iPad Air, which clearly showed that Intel's chipset consists of 22 percent of the cost of Macbook Air while Apple's own A series processor for iPad Air only amounts to a meagre 4 percent of the total cost.

All this speculation and analysis may not be entirely true and I would ask my readers to take it with a pinch of salt and as a food for thought.
