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.

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.
