12.9" iPad Pegged For March Release

Amid growing rumors of a bigger Apple iPad, a new report suggests that the 12.9-inch slate from team Cupertino has hit the testing phase, with an estimated release time frame of late Q1 2014. Previous rumors spoke of a 11.4-inch model, but 12.9-inch seems to be the magic number. If this turns out to be true, 2014 might just end up being the year of "large" Apple devices. Rumors regarding a sub 5-inch iPhone and 6-inch iPhone phablet have been flying around for weeks, and now we have a potential Galaxy Note 12 competitor (another unannounced Samsung tablet which will most certainly go up against Apple's offering).
