Wi-Fi + LTE model costs $929

Apple's iPads are no doubt hugely popular with consumers, but the company has been notoriously stingy with storage space on the devices. When the iPad was originally released in 2010, it was available in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB models. When the fourth generation iPad was announced a few months ago, it too was still stuck with the same storage capacities.
 
Apple has finally listened to the cries of users craving more storage space by announcing a new 128GB model. However, be prepared to pay dearly for it.
 
IPad storage upgrades have always been priced at $100 for double the storage capacity, and the 128GB model is no different -- the 128GB iPad Wi-Fi costs $799 versus $699 for the 64GB iPad Wi-Fi. If you prefer to have the 128GB model with Wi-Fi + LTE, it will set you back a whopping $929.
 

The new 128GB fourth generations will be available in black and white starting on February 5.
 
In other news, Apple yesterday released iOS 6.1 for users of the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. And for iPhone 5 users that have been begging for a jailbreak, your prayers will finally be answered on Super Bowl Sunday.

Apple is doing an excellent job of making the Surface Pro actually feel like a good buy.

Battery life is going to be awful though. And will it wake from sleep instantly like an ARM tablet?

To me this is the unknown. I can't see how the Surface will be any better for battery life than a comparable laptop with a touchscreen.

Agree with you on battery. There is no way, simply none to squeeze more then 4 hours with display dimmed all the way down for those specs. I would suspect more like 3 hours of normal usage, which is pathetic and will be an Achilles' heel for this generation of Surface Pro.
As for resume time, Surface Pro would be able to easily resume from sleep in 1 sec and from hybrid sleep in 4-5 sec. This is absolutely fine for most considerations.

This is an interesting point: the newest iPad competing with the storage of the Surface. Maybe iOS uses less space on its factory install, so good for them (see other Surface article). Would iPad be threatened by the Surface? Am missing something? I thought Surface would be the underdog for a while longer.

Personally I dislike the iPad and the Surface, although I also admit I have not bought either. Probably because I prefer carrying a small device so I do not have to carry a tote bag or wear baggy pants.
