12.9-inch iPad slated for 2014 release?

Apple is said to be prepping an iPad with a screen that could be larger than the current one.

Chinese news site PadNews claims that a new iPad with a display diagonal of either 11.4 or 12.9 inches is being tested at Foxconn at present.

Testing of the user interface is currently being conducted on prototypes, the site writes, adding that the device could be unveiled in March 2014.

PadNews also writes that there are reports “by major research institutions” claiming that the market for tablets larger than 10 inches will grow significantly thanks to the Microsoft Surface tablets.
