Two months ago, Apple announced the impending arrival of its
gigantopad iPad Pro, but wouldn't be drawn on when we could actually buy it. After some pushing, a mumbled hint of November was coaxed out of reps, and rumors began to circulate that the device would ship on November 11th. Now the company has confirmed that the rumors were true, and so the first-generation iPad Pro is ready for the big stage as of this Wednesday. For the first 24 hours or so, the device will be an online-only affair, with product reaching stores "later in the week," which is a euphemism for Apple not knowing if the delivery van will arrive on Thursday or Friday.
