A New Tablet Player Is In Town: Apple iPad Pro.

Apple has been teasing the November launch of the iPad Pro and its accessories, the Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard, since September, but hasn’t officially narrowed down that release window.

Apple’s Entry-level MacBook Air, its most popular computer, needs a replacement more than ever before as competitors are now superior in design, performance and value.According to multiple sources, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) plans to commence 12.9-inch iPad Pro’s sales on November 11, via brick-and-mortar retail and online stores.When Apple announced its iPad Pro earlier in September, it didn’t reveal a release date for the large tablet; however, a new leak has suggested that Cupertino will start selling its new tablet from November 11. According to Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) latest earnings report (click for call transcript), Mac sales continued steady market share growth for almost a decade, defying industry trends such as the IDC’s estimated 10.8% global PC contraction.

In addition to the typical brouhaha associated with the buildup to Black Friday, the company will have two brand new products in stores; the Apple TV and the . According to 9to5Mac, which is usually accurate when it comes to Apple’s product launch announcements, Apple is gearing up to sell its 12.9-inch tablet on Veterans Day.

Additionally, the Mac beat IDC’s and Gartner’s respective growth estimates of -3.4% and +1.5% with a 3% sales increase, but this figure was light compared to the 21% growth from the same period last year. But with a larger size comes a bigger price; the Pro is Apple’s most expensive iPad ever, starting at $799 for a 32GB Wi-Fi model and running all the way up to $1079 for a 128GB version with LTE built in. However, growth has slowed in the last few quarters as fiscal 2015’s Mac sales were just 6% greater than 2014 YOY compared to 2014’s 12% YOY growth over 2013. The Smart Keyboard costs an additional $169, and the Pencil will sell for $99. iPad Pro will launch both in-store and online on the November 11th date, per 9to5Mac’s report.

Investors should note that the Mac is growing to be a wonderful part of Apple’s earnings, as its revenue is now 25% greater than iPads, allowing it to act as a shareholder’s cushion against the tablet’s free-falling revenue. Going forward, there’s a huge potential to grow, as it only held an estimated 6.9% market share for the quarter, which means there’s easily room for another double or triple in the coming years, if Apple responds appropriately to slowing growth. We won’t have much indication of how many Pros Apple sells this holiday season until the end of January, when the company reports its first-quarter earnings. Fortunately, the solution is much easier than Motek Moyen’s touchscreen Mac proposal, as a simple new MacBook lineup will work wonders, especially on the entry level.

The upcoming tablet starts at $799 and, depending on the configuration, can reach as high as $1079 if you want LTE support and as much storage as you can get. Though the US prices are out, Apple is yet to reveal Canadian pricing, but we expect it to release the prices soon provided the November 11 launch date is true. As we detailed earlier this week, Apple’s new tablet might very well be the company’s last real chance to save the iPad from unceremoniously fading away into the realm of irrelevancy. One item of interest that Apple noted was that Macs are gaining traction in the enterprise front as there are now more than 30,000 Macs deployed within IBM, with 1,900 being added each week.

In my past experience at Hawaiian Airlines corporate, MacBooks are highly desirable among employees and management, and developing multi-platform systems are a priority in order to please staff while generating cost savings. At the International Association of Chiefs of Police annual conference in Chicago, both companies agreed to share the security commitment, global scale, and technology. All in all, it was a solid quarter for the Mac, considering the estimated declines and industry contraction, but the small 3% growth is a concern that needs to be addressed, especially as iPad sales are free-falling.

The two companies can achieve the objective through combined capabilities of Windows 10 devices and Microsoft Azure’s cloud platform with TASER’s Axon Platform and solution. Personal computer operating systems, whether it’s El Capitan or Macintosh System 1, all rely on the precision of the tip of a mouse cursor, and for decades computer programs grew around this foundation. Yesterday, before markets opened, the company announced to combine its business in European region with its partners and manufacture, Coca-Cola bottler. As per the agreement, Coca-Cola Iberian Partners SA, Coca-Cola Enterprises Inc (NYSE:CCE) and Coca-Cola Erfrischungsgetranke AG have agreed to join hands and create a new company called Coca-Cola European Partners Plc.

The alternative solution to this problem is to start with an all-new operating system and replace the notebook PC outright in the way that iPad is doing. I’m not stating that the iPad is better than a Windows tablet PC, but if you’re looking for a touchscreen computer from Apple, it’s highly likely that the iPad will morph into just that in the years to come. Of course, Apple’s successful transition into the enterprise is excellent news, but Macs are found in cafes, not offices, and pleasing the consumer requires something new. I strongly believe that an all-new redesign of the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro will restore sales to their former growth as Apple’s innovative lead has vanished with the exception of the new MacBook. The company’s move can put it in direct competition with products such as Apple Inc.’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) CarPlay and Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG), which would make this quite a difficult task due to the strong number of deals between car makers and these companies.

The smartphone maker is struggling with market share, with Apple and others pushing it aside with their superior products that Samsung can’t seem to deliver anymore. The $800 Dell XPS 13 for example, is thinner, lighter, features a higher-resolution 13″ display and offers equivalent storage and RAM to the $1,000 13″ MacBook Air. Samsung Group, after selling a huge debt-making car unit to Renault in 2010 announced its second venture into the auto industry, pinpointing car batteries as one of its most significant growth businesses. Samsung Electro-Mechanics has designed a committed team to sell components such as camera modules to new clients, while emphasizing on acquisitions to boost car-related businesses.

There is a possibility that while Samsung could provide in-car services to other companies, it could also provide sensors and other components to make the next generation of smart connected cars. According to ABI’s Bonte, Samsung can speed up things by acquiring recognized companies such as Japan’s Renesas Electronics, which, according to Gartner, was the world’s top auto semiconductor maker last year, with $3.1 billion in revenue.
