Apparently, there’s a rumor going around – zero credibility, by the way – that Apple will be debuting a new 12.9″ larger iPad. The existence of the product is not the terribly unlikely part, though. One of the rumored names, however, is: iPad Maxi.
Okay, that’s not going to happen.
But is it really that far fetched given the prevalence of absurd names like “iPad mini” and even worse, “iPad Air”?
Oh, I suppose they could have gone all Starbucks on us and called them, the “iPad Tall” (for the mini, of course), “iPad Grande” (because, you know, “grande” obviously means “medium” or “regular” in some weirdo vernacular) and, of course, the new 12.9″ iPad Vente. (Note that Vente theoretically means 20, as in 20 oz. Note, too, that the Vente when applied to a cold beverage, is 24 oz.)
Ya, Starbucks names annoy the crap out of me. I still say “medium”.
Maybe it’s time for the “iPad Small”, “iPad Medium”, and “iPad Large”.
Heck, I’m not even so sure about the name “iPad” itself.
