For those of you that need more than the 64 GB of storage that is currently a ail blue on the Apple iPad 4, be at peace my friends because now you can double the memory and purchase the iPad 4 with 128 GB of on board memory. Starting next Tuesday February the 5th, two colors of the iPad will be releases at a cost of $799.00 for the wifi only version and $929.00 for the wifi plus cellular data version. The two colors of course will be white and black.
With more versions of the iPad available and with pricing lowered on each of the earlier models, now Apple can really drive profits on the flagship device to help offset having the less expensive brands. But at $930 dollars can you continue to justify the expense and not just get a Ultrabook that is more powerful or in this case a MacBook Air? I can only justify $500 dollars for a shiny new tablet from our fruit friends. To save the $130 dollars I have opted for the data sharing plan from AT&T that offers free tethering. With iCloud, Google, and Dropbox solutions I am at a loss to see why anyone would need that kind of memory on a tablet. There is iTunes Match and Netflix for the serious media streaming folks. Slacker and Pandora for music enthusiasts.
With over 300 millions iPads sold, Apple is clearly got the recipe right as they are already working on a fifth version of the full size tablet and a second version of the mini said to include a retina screen. According to Apple there are over 300,000 apps especially suited for the iPad as well.
So get your 128 GB Apple iPad 4 on starting next Tuesday and get ready to drop a bundle for all that storage.
For more information head on over to Apple for the full announcement.

  1. With pricing like this, a surface pro with a 64gig SD card is starting to oust the fruit tablet…. Say no more!

    • a 64GB sd card in a Surface pro still only gives you about 80-90GB of free space since the Pro only has 23GB free from the factory…

      Not to mention they’re devices marketed towards different purposes..

      I’ll be buying an iPad w/128GB as soon as I get back from my next trip.

      I’m not remotely interested in a Surface Pro.

      • Chris why on earth would you need that much storage on an iPad? If it is music wouldn’t it make sense to do iTunes Match? I just got my slacker premium account renewed and I am listening to it right now checking twitter for @evad3rs for their first tweet!

      • i might be with chris on this one, i can see his use case. stuff that thing with as much books and movies as humanly possible, and still have room for a healthy amount of songs. hmmmm…

      • Exactly Ramon. Doug, I have iTunes Match, and I have over 20GB of music in that. I have over 800GB of videos that is growing as I ‘backup’ my massive DVD collection. I don’t buy Bluray or DVD anymore, they’re all through iTunes now. I have a ton of Apps and they simply don’t fit on the iPad with music and movies. I do the VAST majority of my streaming on my iPhone and leave the iPad for storing a good collection of music for trips.

      • One word DAMN! You just go on wit yo bad media collecting self! I’ll stick with my Netflix and Slacker.

  2. I already found a couple of my friends who are strong fruitboys pissed off of this. They bought 64GB iPad 4th Gen disposing their hardly 6 month old iPads 3rd Gen 3 months back. I see a lot of iPad 4th Gen with 32GB or 64GB in bargain bins shortly.
