Two months after its debut at Apple's press conference, the iPad Pro is making its way to customers on November 11.
The new tablet features a 12.9-inch display with a 2732 x 2048 resolution, and it's powered by a 64-bit A9X chip, a variant of the new A9 processor. Our own Lucian Armasu wrote that the company claimed that the A9X was faster than "80 percent of portable PCs," but Apple didn't provide details as to how it measured that data.
The presentation also showed some new peripherals to go with the device, specifically a stylus and keyboard called the Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard, respectively. However, you will have to purchase them separately; the Apple Pencil is $99, and the Smart Keyboard is $169.
As for the iPad Pro itself, the Wi-Fi-only model comes in 32 GB or 128 GB storage variants at $799 and $949, respectively. The Wi-Fi + Cellular version only comes with 128 GB of internal storage and will cost $1,079.

It's basically a large iPod (unless you can make calls then it's a super large iPhone).
Until they can step up to OSX in the tablet market Microsoft will be laughing all the way to the bank, so I'm not really sure who they are targeting.
Actually Steve Jobs was a highly intelligent business man and idealist who came up with products that would appeal to the typical consumer rather than the tech-savvy. He's one of the smartest men I know, and his money and company can support that statement.
You are aware that Apple is not the only company that uses Foxconn to build their products right? Just about every piece of computer hardware you own comes out of Foxconn. And that includes cell phones (both HTC and Samsung use Foxconn), tablets, motherboards, flat screen TVs, game consoles, laptops, I could go on and on.
