The fourth-generation iPad will have a capacity of 128GB, considerably more than the current version and will go on sale from Monday.
Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing said:
“With more than 120 million iPads sold, it’s clear that customers around the world love their iPads, and everyday they are finding more great reasons to work, learn and play on their iPads rather than their old PCs. With twice the storage capacity and an unparalleled selection of over 300,000 native iPad apps, enterprises, educators and artists have even more reasons to use iPad for all their business and personal needs.”
Unfortunately the 128GB iPad will be priced at $799 (≈ $799) for the cheapest version and $929 (≈ $929) for the Wi-Fi touting, 3G spouting version (a MacBook Air costs only $170 (≈ $170) more).

“I’m glad there are options. But these prices are getting ridiculous for simply more storage.”
