Six Reasons Why we Think the iPad Pro Outsold the Surface Last Quarter

It was not supposed to be this way. With the Surface getting better and the tablet market in seeming decline, Apple’s oversized iPad Pro was seen by many as being cannon fodder for the Surface brigade, not least because of the mixed reviews the former got as compared to the largely positive response to the Surface range. And yet, when […]

Microsoft’s Entire Surface Line Outsold by iPad Pro in Q4 2015: IDC

Regardless of the mixed reviews and the late launch, Apple’s iPad Pro seems to be doing pretty well in the tablet market at least when compared to Microsoft’s Surface line according to a recent estimate by IDC that points to a rise of the detachable hybrids last quarter. “We believe Apple sold just over two million iPad Pros while Microsoft […]

     
 
 

The Surface Pro 4 has Competition – and it is NOT the iPad Pro!

The Surface Pro 4 has Competition – and it is NOT the iPad Pro!

The iPad Pro Only Diaries, Day Four: We Have a Multimedia Monster!

It was a relatively quiet fourth day in terms of work on the iPad Pro (hey, we writers have our quiet days, especially towards the end of the year), which meant that I could mess around with one of the features that is supposed to be a key selling point of the biggest iPad of ’em all – multimedia.

The iPad Pro Only Diaries Day 3: Cometh the USB drive… and the Pencil!

The iPad Pro Only Diaries Day 2: Multi-tasking Joys and Siri Blues!

Day Two of the “iPad Pro Only” was a busy one. There were a few meetings, interspersed with writing, and well, even a bit of image tweaking. In short, leaving aside media events (which do tend to take place from time to time), this was a slightly more typical day in this writer’s life – meet people, talk, browse, write, […]

The iPad Pro Only Diaries, Day 1: Why am I Doing This…and What I Did?

When I told people that I would be spending the rest of 2015 using only an iPad Pro, ditching my trusty notebook (it’s not THAT long a period, really – just about half a dozen days), their first reaction was “why?”. And with good reason. After all, the iPad Pro is not really positioned as a notebook killer, more as […]
