Perfect for comics. I'd buy it provided the resolution is absurdly high and it wasn't a fantastic jump in price.

I think that these large tablets (12" and beyond) are a niche market, for most people even 10" is too large and the 7-8" range seem to be the sweet spot. Maybe 12"+ will have a place in the business sector, but I hardly see them hitting it with consumers, we're seeing a shift towards smaller tablets already.
I'm still trying to figure out what niche a 9.7" tablet is for.

12.9" is much closer to the size of an actual magazine, or textbook, or sheet music.

Darn it! I just bought a new iPad, the original was wearing out. If I had known this, I would have waited.
Could be a long wait. This is only a rumor at present with a projected 2014 release date - could be December 2014 or later.

(A lot of pixels)
If this maxi comes out, the screen will most likely have the same res as the existing ipad, i.e 2048x1536. For a 13", that's 196dpi, which hardly qualifies as retina.

I'd love one. 10" is too small for magazines.

Because that size is most useful for real computing, and iOS is not a full OS. If you're going to carry something around that large, it may as well be a full PC. The usefulness of a screen that size with an OS that can't multitask is pretty limited. As I said, I'd rather have something like the Lenovo Yoga in that size.

Of course I didn't see the point of the original iPad either, so what do I know.

What do you consider a "full OS"?

Multitasking, file management, multiple user profiles, etc.

12.9 inches is still a bit small for me. I really want 14 inches.

I have been looking for a device for reading sheet music for ages. Ideally I want an e-ink screen, but a high res backlit screen may have to suffice, as I have waited many years as it is. I went so far as to buy the Sony tap20, but windows 8 was a total failure so I returned it. I have high hopes for the large e-ink reader that Sony has previewed.

Maybe 2014 will be the year.

I agree. Something in the 14" - 17" range with a stylus so that you can put markings in the music is what I want. It wouldn't even need to have backlighting or frontlighting because I could put it on a music stand with a stand light.

I know people who use the current 9.7" iPad for music, and I'm just thinking this 12.9" iPad would be an improvement.
