iPad Pro: Analyst questions imminent arrival of 12–inch tablet

Apple’s super–sized iPad Pro is unlikely to launch in the next few months, amid reports that shipments of the slate's 12–inch displays are not at high enough volumes to point to an imminent release.

That’s the word from IHS analyst Rhoda Alexander. She queried whether Apple was even set on a specific screen size for the device, throwing into doubt previous reports that Tim Cook and co were working on a 12.9–inch model.

Interestingly, she said that ‘various sizes’ of screen were being discussed, pointing to Apple not being nearly close enough to scale up production for a spring launch.

Following the launch of Samsung’s 12–inch Galaxy Note Pro at CES, it was widely thought that Apple would not be long in following the lead of its biggest rival.

However, Alexander’s caution shows that we could be looking at an autumn launch of the iPad Pro at the very earliest.
