$498 for A10 + Apple pencil support is totally worth it. Price for student is $468.

Via this link: https://www.apple.com/sg_edu_4911/shop

Scroll down till you see Accessories and click on “Shop Now”.

Scroll down or select the “Creativity” category and you should be able to find the Apple Pencil via educational pricing.

Mine isn’t really a 3rd party keyboard, cause I’m using the Mac Keyboard, but it’s like an external Bluetooth keyboard.

Also I’ve gotten a third party cover, and using the Apple Pencil.

I really doubt it will be edgeless. Reason for edgeless phone is due to size. Haha! iPad 13Ē edgeless donít seems impressive as it only add 1/2 in. However I agree the edgeless design will look awesome

I don't know how edgeless will be good to be honest. It looks good, but practically will not be easy to use since people hold tablets usually with 2 hands. You will need some space to grip it without touching the screen. Edgeless is possible on phones because you can hold it in one hand.

If it’s truly edgeless, lots of software engineering would be needed to know how to reject accidental touches.

Just like when the iPad mini was launched:
