Apple announces 128GB iPad

The iPad with Retina display will now be offered in a 128GB variety

Apple on Tuesday announced a new iPad that's a lot like the existing fourth-generation iPad, only with more storage than ever before. The iPad with Retina display will now be offered in a 128GB variety. The Wi-Fi model will retail for A$869; the Wi-Fi + Cellular option will cost A$1,009.

The 128GB iPad doubles the 64GB iPad size that was formerly the tablet line's maximum storage space. The 64GB, 32GB, and 16GB models all remain available at their existing price points.

Though Apple's doing its best to help offload storage to the cloud when possible--see iTunes Match and iTunes in the Cloud, for example--Retina display-ready apps are getting larger and larger, making iPad storage space ever more precious. When it released iOS 6.1 on Monday, Apple announced that more than 300,000 iPad-native apps are available in the App Store.

With the exception of its bigger storage space, the 128GB iPad is otherwise identical to previous incarnations of the fourth-generation iPad, first released in late 2012: It employs a 9.7-inch Retina display, A6X chip, FaceTime HD camera, and comes with iOS 6.1 installed.

The 128GB iPad will be available starting February 5.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
