Apple Announces 128 GB iPad 4 Priced at $799, $929

By - Source: Apple | B 62 comments

It took the firm seven months to produce 100 million units.

Apple has confirmed the recently rumored 128 GB model of the fourth-generation iPad with prices starting at $799.

The 128 gigabyte WiFi iPad will cost $799, while a cellular version will retail for $929. Both variants of the fourth-generation iPad are scheduled for a launch on February 5 in black and white. It'll be available through Apple's online store, its retail stores and selected resellers.

The 128 GB iPad sports all of the same features offered by the 16, 32 and 64 GB models including a 9.7-inch Retina display, a FaceTime HD camera and an A6X processor.

"With more than 120 million iPads sold, it’s clear that customers around the world love their iPads, and everyday they are finding more great reasons to work, learn and play on their iPads rather than their old PCs," 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."

    So everyone's moving to the cloud and Apple is abandoning it?

    This another product designed for people who know or care zip about electronics. 128 GB is overkill, I have a hard enough time filling 32GB. Just store on the cloud or carry around a portable drive if you need the space. Oh wait forgot can't do that with an iPad.

    iTurd and crApple are one overpriced scam POS for a tablet that run on a crappy iOS. Instead of adding a MicroSD slot they just scam the idiots into buying their over hype crap.

    Apparently 128GB of flash memory costs more than $300 for Apple.

    Apple doesn't want the ability to plug in more storage because then they wouldn't be able to come out with the new 128 gig version, or the new 64 gig version before that, or the new 196 gig version in a few months.. Or the new bigger battery version, or the new every few months at a massive price premium.

    Things like more memory didn't use to warrant a new version, customers could just buy more memory and stick it in themselves. Not with apple, more memory means buying the new $800 version of the same thing you have, instead of a $20 memory chip...

    It goes against apples very business model. Their business model is marketing, they know how to work their target audience. They know how to extract lots of dollars from a majority of tech illiterate people(not everyone is, but the majority of apple customers are). Their core business is marketing, not hardware/software, and they do it very well.

    The iPad 4 uses the A6X SoC, which is much beefier than the A5X found in the iPad 3. It has approximately twice as much CPU and GPU power, and twice the memory bandwidth

    Now if Apple did something like make it able to run all of their MAC OS apps, then they might have something to justify the price. Otherwise they are just gouging for storage in line with the Surface Pro release date. Weak!
