Apple announces 128GB fourth-gen iPad

Confirming reports, Apple has officially announced that a 128GB version of the fourth-generation iPad with Retina display will go on sale Tuesday, Feb. 5, in black or white. The Wi-Fi model will cost $799, and the Wi-Fi + Cellular model will cost $929. Apple is pitching the higher-capacity iPad primarily to “enterprises, educators and artists,” suggesting that its capacity will be useful for “over 300,000 native iPad apps.” This appears to be an acknowledgement that the iPad is becoming a viable alternative to laptops, and will be offered in capacities rivaling them.

How in the world can you claim that a mere 128 GB of storage rivals a laptop given that many entry-level laptops these days have nearly ten times that?

It should have been released a year after they released iPods and iPads with a 64GB memory capacity. That kind of memory was available back then FOR A REASONABLE PRICE. Instead, we had Apple trying to tell us that we didn’t need that much memory and that 64GB was good enough for another few years. I always said they should just keep their opinions to themselves, shut up, and make 128GB iPod and iPad whether they felt we needed it or not.
