Youtube user TLDToday got his hands on what he says is a dummy iPad Air 2. He got it via Sonny Dickson, and while we don’t know how Sonny got his hands on it the guy has generally been a good source of Apple leaks in the past. Continue reading
Rumors circulated last year that Apple was working on a larger iPad, possibly with either a 12.9″ or a 13.3″ screen, but it wasn’t until today that any real proof existed to show that the rumors were real.
A new photo was posted to Weibo earlier today which appears to show an aluminum mold carved in the shape of a larger iPad.

According to one of my contacts, Ballmer OK’d the suggestion by the Office team that they’d bring Office for iPad to market as soon as it was ready, even though that would likely mean before the Windows 8 version.
