So for the past forty odd years I have been kidding myself that size doesn’t really matter. I’ve been more than happy with who I am and what I have. That is until recently! A colleague and I have just been given a 12.9″ iPad Pro. And so what I hear you say. After all its been around for some time now and it is even mooted that the iPad Pro 2 will soon be released. In addition to this I don’t really prescribe to all the Apple Hype. Sure they are great products and sure they do what they are supposed to do. But for me that is where it ends. Anyone that knows me will tell you that value for money in addition to technical ability are key. This over the asthetic fashionista’s that cling to the Apple logo like they are the one’s who actually took the bite out of the Apple. Anyway, I have now had a chance to play with the iPad and if I’m honest……I think I really like it. Its nice to touch, has a quality feel and the large screen has excellent clarity and functionality. On the down side, and being the person I am, I don’t really like the fact that I have to pay for any App of interest?
I have to say one more thing, this is actually the second iPad I have owned (used) and the previous one was a first get iPad mini, and what a load of rubbish this was. Small, slow and cumbersome (a bit like me). Anyway, with my new iPad Pro 12.9″ (and the .9″ makes all the difference) I now feel sorry for all the iPad mini, iPad, or even small iPad Pro users out there.
So to conclude, Size does matter and to those with the “other, smaller, inadequate iPads out there………..who’s the daddy now!
