Apple has today announced officially that it is working on a new fourth generation iPad that will have 128 GB of storage space, twice the storage space of what is currently available. At the moment, you can only get an iPad with 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of storage space.
Apple also announced that two versions of the 128GB iPad will be available, one with Wi-Fi only and the other with Wi-Fi and Cellular network support. The new iPad will be available as from February 5 and will retail from $799 for the Wi-Fi only iPad and $929 for the one that supports cellular networks. As usual you should expect the price to be much higher when the device is launched Kenya.
According to Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing, “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.” He also added that with the extra storage space and the huge number of native apps for the iPad, customers will have more reasons to use their iPads for either personal or business needs.
Apple also added that the new 128 GB iPad will not replace any of the currently available iPad models and will be available in either black or white.
