ipad 128gb ss

As promised, Apple’s new 128GB iPad has become available today. While in-store availability is still unknown, the tablet can be ordered online with an estimated shipping time of 1-3 business days.

Evidence of the high-capacity iPad was first spotted in the just-released iOS 6.1 firmware last week. And shortly after that, Apple confirmed the slate’s existence and launch date of February 5…

From Apple’s press release:

“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.”

The new 128GB iPad is available in both black and white, and in either Wi-Fi-only or Wi-Fi + Cellular versions. The Wi-Fi model costs $799 and the + Cellular (LTE for many) model’s a hefty $929.

Although Apple doesn’t provide specific country availability, the 128GB option has been in every web store we’ve looked at. And all show similar ship times: 1-3 days for Wi-Fi, 3-5 days for +Cellular.

Apple caught a lot of people off guard with this off-cycle tablet release, especially since there’s nothing new about it outside of its increased storage. A redesigned iPad 5 is expected to land in October.

So, who’s planning on getting a new 128GB iPad?

Thanks Leonard!

    I’ve always said ipad is really nothing but a huge I touch for. 1000$ you can get top of the line. Laptop or possibly a mac book its not worth it and it’s not needed unless u don’t want to carry a big laptop with u my advice get a iphone or I touch same capabilities nothing really that special

    Brace yourselves, people of the internet… “iPad = just iPod with bigger screen” people incomming… *eyerolling*

    Nope, too late.

    Either way. Too expensive indeed.
    16GB needs to die.
    I even think for a “PC replacement” 32GB should be gone by now as well…

    To be completely honest here, 128GB should be the starter option the way Apple likes to position the device as.
    And don’t get me started on external HDDs… I could get great use out of that on vacations to store my iTunes synced stuff to. HD content doesn’t come in small 5MB packages you know…

  • By the time your halfway through using up just 65 gigs another iPad will be coming out so what’s the point… But yet again there’s nothing wrong with having extra space… But yet again… That price lol

  • These fuckers the only reason they made it is because it cost them the same to make as a 16gb.They sell 300% fuck you bitchs.

  • Lol, good marketing strategy for noobs who judge functionality by storage size; now you can say to Surface Pro 128 GB users “I too haz 128 GB!”.
