iPad Pro 10.5 has hit the shelves of Nepali market. Despite the tablet market dipping faster than ever the iPad Pro 10.5 seems like a perfect bridge between normal sized tablets and ultrabooks. Although tablets are mostly used for media consumption, the Pro model of iPad from Apple can be used as a stripped down version of laptops or it basically can act like your laptop.
Let’s get down to the business here. The iPad Pro 10.5, as the name suggests, comes with a 10.5-inch retina display with a resolution of 2224 x 1668 pixels. The so-called retina display from Apple comes with small but noticeable features like true-tone display allowing the device to change the tone of the display according to the environment. The genius piece of hardware is coated with oleophobic coating minimizing the fingerprints. And yes, the tablet also comes with anti-glare protection. Not to forget the Pro Motion Technology implemented on the device, allowing users to use their Apple pencil with zero to no latency.
Let’s take a peek inside the guts of this huge tablet. It comes integrated with Apple’s A10X Fusion chip accompanied by 12-core GPU and 4GB of RAM. The combination of powerful hardware and Apple’s upcoming optimized iOS 11, the iPad Pro 10.5 will surely replace those ultrabooks.
Though tablets are not meant to be used to snap pictures(especially this big), the iPad Pro 10.5 comes with decent optics, for whatever reasons. There’s a 12MP sensor at the rear with f/1.8 aperture, while the front is taken care by a 7MP sensor with retina flash for selfies. Powering the device will be a 30.4-watt-hour battery assured to provide a 10 hour of screen on time.
The Apple iPad Pro 10.5 is no doubt a beast of its own but whether it will fill the void of ultrabooks/laptops users in Nepal or not is yet to be seen, especially considering its mammoth price tag of Rs. 88,000. The device can be purchased from EvoStore located in Mercantile Plaza, Durbarmarg, Kathmandu.
