128GB iPad now available from Apple's online store

Apple has begun offering a 128GB version of the fourth-generation iPad

As announced at the end of January, Apple has begun offering a 128GB version of the fourth-generation iPad on the company's online store.

The Wi-Fi-only model of the most recent addition to Apple's tablet lineup costs A$869, while the LTE-enabled version will set you back A$1,009, the highest price the Cupertino company has ever charged for an iPad. Except for the additional memory, the devices are identical to their fourth-generation counterparts that sport less memory.

At the time of this writing, Apple lists availability between one and three business days for both the Wi-Fi and GSM versions of the 128GB iPad, the latter of which is designed to work on all Australian 3G and 4G networks.

The addition of a higher-capacity tablet to the iPad family should come as welcome news to power users who need to store lots of media like videos, photos, or high-quality music. In addition, as the App Store inches towards one million apps, more memory is likely to benefit every user in the long run, particularly once economies of scale allow Apple to lower prices in the long run.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
