My hands aren’t getting any bigger, but screens certainly are. Phones are now so massive that many people use a grip to actually hold them. And, with its keyboard cover on, Apple ’s largest tablet, the 12.9-inch iPad, weighs more than the MacBook Air.
I just want to hold a device in my hand without giving my palm a workout. That’s why I’m a longtime fan of the book-size iPad Mini. And I’m not the only one: Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook said pilots strap them to their legs, and doctors stash them in lab-coat pockets.
