Report: Foxconn Commissioned to Build Bigger iPad for Release in 2014
Despite the recent refresh of its market leading iPhones and iPads, Apple's attention is still focused squarely on the future. And based on new reports out of China today, the focus has also turned to 2014 for the company's top manufacturing partners.
The chatter we're hearing is that Foxconn has been commissioned by Apple to commence a test production run of what is only being described as a larger-screened iPad. If today's report is accurate, we may see this larger-than-ever iPad next year.
Industry sources confess that the rumored 12.9 inch iPad won't be kept under wraps until next October, however. In fact, we could see it as early as spring, perhaps during the month of March.
Then again, as Ubergizmo's Adnan Farooqui astutely said today, Apple "might simply be experimenting with a number of display sizes for its popular tablet, experiments that in no way change the display size of the iPad it releases next year."

Holy moly! How much would that cost?!

Love my Apple products but I cannot justify an iPad purchase beyond iPad 2 and mini. Nothing revolutionary in a chrome rim and faster processor. Thinner and lighter is not mind blowing. Im hoping a Pro model drops with OS X. I'd even take an older version, at least it would have the Office Suite I need for work :]

40x zoom 40 mega Pixel camera. Waterproof/dust proof, unbreakable, unscratchable. I'm not sure what else but that is for guys like Steve Jobs to come up with.

They better up the ante on their screens. Kindle HDX beat them out in screen tests.

What phone has edge to edge and how are cases involved if they can't hug the sides of the phone?
Never having to charge it again lol
I understand that would be cool but it's not going to happen.
40 megapixel camera doesn't exist on a smartphone. The lumia isn't 40 pixels. It takes good photos but it uses software to zoom in that much.
Unbreakable? Businesses lose money for that.
Unscratchable is a great thing to shoot for in revolutionary.

Cool... Finally Apple plasma TV... Just what we needed... Apple is everything about just size now. Bigger, smaller, smaller bigger, bigger bigger and smaller smaller. Come on.

Regarding screen size, yes, I'll agree they might've heard Samsung's development and so they're jumping on the band wagon.
