Apple recently announced the latest addition to their tech family tree and the newest member to its range of iPad tablets. Everything about this new iPad is the same (dual-core A6X processor, 2 GB of RAM, 10 hours battery life) except its storage space. In fact, this new iPad is set to be the “fattest” and most heavyweight compared to the rest of Apple’s existing tablets.
Introducing, the 9.7-inch Retina iPad with 128 GB of storage. Yes, that’s double the tablet’s previous max capacity.
This new iPad is said to be targeted at professional users, including those in the architectural and medical fields who handle large files. Plus, to account for the added storage space, the 128 GB WiFi model will be priced at USD799 whilst the LTE model will cost USD929.
It seems that Apple is now doing the same thing to its iPad products like what they did to their Macs – updating existing ones instead of rolling out new ones all the time. Not entirely the worst decision yet but we’ll just have to wait and see if there’s going to be a new, newer, newer, new iPad in a couple of months before we draw up conclusions.
In any case, a 128 GB iPad? The possibilities are endless!
No word on when it’ll come to our shores but It will be available in the US starting 5th February 2013 (Tuesday).
Alright, enough waiting. The 128 GB iPad is now available via the Apple Store (Malaysia)!
