Ming-Chi Kuo Predicts 12.9-Inch iPad to Ship With an Optional Stylus

Eric Slivka, reporting for MacRumors:

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is back with another report outlining his belief that Apple will launch a stylus as an optional accessory for the company’s rumored 12.9-inch “iPad Pro”. With the new iPad’s larger screen, it will likely prove popular with enterprise and creative users who tend to have more need for a stylus and Kuo believes Apple will fill that need with an in-house solution. […]

Kuo believes the stylus will be an optional accessory rather than included standard with the new iPad, as the relatively expensive stylus would drive the base cost of the iPad too high.

Worth noting because Kuo has a remarkable track record — I don’t think anyone has better sources in the Asian supply chain.
