Apple confirms launch of 128GB iPad

Apple has announced the launch of a 128GB fourth-generation iPad, to be commercially available from next week, confirming rumours that a new tablet was imminent.

The tablet will join the ranks of the three existing 4G iPads with Retina display, but doubles the storage capacity of existing models.

The announcement confirms reports by HumanIPO that the launch of such a device was on the way, with Apple now revealing that the launch is coming sooner than expected, on February 5.

“With more than 120 million iPads sold, it’s clear that customers around the world love their iPads,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.

“With twice the storage capacity and an unparalleled selection of over 300,000 native iPad apps, enterprises, educators and artists have even more reasons to use iPad for all their business and personal needs.”

The 128GB model has the same specifications as the existing three fourth-generation iPads, namely, a 9.7-inch Retina display, Apple-designed A6X chip, FaceTime® HD camera, and runs  iOS 6.1. The devices are also fully LTE enabled.

Apple is targeting business clients in particular, noting that companies using large amounts of data will especially benefit from the new storage capacity options. The company claims that the 85 percent of the Global 500 firms are already trialling or deploying iPads for the workplace.

However, the device will also be available to private customers, and can be purchased via the Apple online store, Apple retailers, and authorised resellers.

The 128GB iPad will be available in black and white, and in Wi-Fi only, and Wi-Fi plus cellular models. The former will priced at US$799 and the latter at US$929.
