Reviews for the iPad Pro have been trickling out for the past few days, but that the device has actually been released, you can get your hands on and decide for yourself. For those of you who still want to check out some reviews before you spend at least $800 on a new iPad, the general consensus seems to be that it’s Apple’s best tablet to date, but it’s capabilities as a productivity-focused device are a bit limited by iOS.
Apple’s iPad Pro goes on sale today in more than 40 countries. As is often the case, prospective buyers are turning to the Internet to see what those in tech circles have to say about the new tablet – a wise move considering it starts at $799 for a 32GB model with Wi-Fi and well over a grand if you require a cellular connection (and that’s before purchasing the optional companion keyboard and stylus). While it may seem like just another iPad to some, that’s hardly the case. Unlike previous iterations, the iPad Pro targets an entirely different demographic: working professionals. Apple has a lot riding on the success of the iPad Pro. It’s the first major fork (or the second, if you count the iPad mini) and the first serious enterprise play but more importantly, it’s an attempt to revive a category that’s become marred by a combination of market saturation, a lengthy replacement cycle and cannibalization from large-screen smartphones.
