12.9-inch screen for iPad Pro now in production

We’ve been telling you about the forthcoming iPad Maxi (or that’s iPad Pro) in the past and now we have another proof such device is in the making.

According to Korea Times, Apple has struck a deal with a 1st tier supplier in Korea (most likely LG), which has already started making 12.9-inch panels for the company. Here’s what the paper says:

It is said that Cook & Co. will launch the bigger iPad in early 2014, putting many laptop makers out of business along the way (or at least seriously affect their earnings). You may not think that laptop computers compete with tablets, but it’s a fact that fewer and fewer laptops are sold every year, while tablet sales are booming. We’ll see what the next year brings…
