128GB iPad now available from Apple's online store

By Marco Tabini, Macworld |  Consumerization of IT, Apple, 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 $799, while the LTE-enabled version will set you back $929, 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 AT&T's cellular network. Verizon and Sprint customers, on the other hand, will have to wait a little longer, as the company expects that CDMA iPads will be shipped from three to five days after purchase.

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.
