New larger-capacity iPad pricing starts at $799

128GB iPad officially announced; launching Feb 5th

Turns out the rumours were true, Apple has officially announced that it will release a 128GB version of the fourth-gen iPad with Retina Display.

The new 128GB tablet will come in both WiFi and WiFi + Cellular versions, and will be available from February 5th from Apple’s stores and online, as well as Apple authorised resellers.

Earlier this week, PCR reported that a code in the latest iOS 6.1 beta 5 referenced compatibility with 128GB iOS devices.

“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,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.

“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.”

Available in both Black and White, the new larger-capacity iPad will cost $799 for the WiFi version and $929 for the WiFi + Cellular model.
