This could be a third-party case for the rumored 12-inch iPad Pro / iPad Air Plus

Here is an image of a leaked case for the rumored iPad Pro / iPad Air Plus. And as I've been talking about before, the iPad pro will have 4 speakers so that you always will have stereo speakers no matter how you hold it, landscape mode or portrait mode. But personally I think this 12-inch iPad will be too big to hold anyways. And I think also a rear camera on such a large device is really strange.

Personally I still thinks that this device will not be just a larger iPad, it will be something else. More like a Microsoft Surface or something. Or maybe the rumored 12-inch MacBook Air and the rumored 12-inch iPad Pro is the same device?

The case appears to have two speaker cutouts at both the top and bottom, which would accommodate the stereo speakers that have been rumored for the device. There are also cutouts for a headphone jack at the top left of the case, volume buttons at the right, a camera cutout at the back, a Lightning port cutout at the bottom, and a power button cutout on the top right, all of which is in line with previous iPad Air and iPad mini designs.

Apple's iPhone 6 devastates Samsungs premium Galaxy sales

Apple's iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is a huge success. So huge that plenty of companies had much lower profits than expected. Samsung had more than 60% lower profits than expected, mainly from their premium high end phones like the Galaxy Note and S5. And also Qualcomm has to lower their expectations for their Snapdragon chip profits thanks to the iPhone 6.

And as I said even before the iPhone 6 were released, when the larger iPhone was still just a rumor: “Android users will switch in droves”. And they sure did!

Samsung Electronics reported overall Q4 operating profits of 5.29 trillion won ($4.9 billion)—a 36 percent year-over-year drop—but its Mobile division suffered a 64.2 percent drop in profits, falling from $5 billion in the year ago quarter to $1.8 billion in the December quarter.

Chipmaker Qualcomm on Wednesday revised its revenue forecast downward for 2015, lopping nearly $1 billion off of its high-end estimate and seemingly blaming the change in part on Apple's annexation of market share with the iPhone 6.

Following on the heels of a record-breaking quarter for Apple, Strategy Analytics has crunched the numbers and crowned Apple the king of the smartphone vendors for Q4 2014—or rather, one of the kings. It seems the Cupertino company managed to tie rival Samsung for the title.
