A recent report from the Wall Street Journal alleged that Apple was asking suppliers to provide them with display samples for a larger 13-inch iPad.

CiccareseDesign was commissioned by MacRumors to create renderings of such a device. The display size was increased from 9.7-inches to 12.9-inches while maintaining the 4:3 aspect ratio.

If Apple were, however, to maintain the same 132/264 ppi of the current 9.7-inch iPad, this 12.9-inch iPad could conveniently carry an increased resolution of approximately 1366 x 1024 (2712 x 2048 Retina), matching the "HD" display standard in width and exceeding it in height.

Check out the renderings below that show the imagined device next to various other Apple devices.

Do you think Apple needs a larger iPad in its lineup? Let us know in the comments!

13" is a step in the right direction. Yes, Apple needs (and customers want) a larger screen iOS experience. Despite other comments here, ioS is increasingly capable of doing what most everyone needs - buy a Mac if you need OSX. (But keep in mind that iOS is just a stripped OSX, anyway, so features can be added or removed as needed.) What IS needed are more pixels to see and do more. My ideal iOS device is a full-page-sized 14-15" iPad allowing it to really work as a magazine or document sized reader. After that, I want a 50" version as my real desktop....
