Apple 128GB iPad has arrived for sales at price of $799 today.Apple’s fourth-generation 128GB iPad features the latest update of iOS and comes with Retina Display. The 9.7-inch 128GB iPad is pulling away from its 7.9-inch earlier sibling, to say I’m different with a major flash storage bump.
The new 128GB iPad Apple was announced just last week. It is similar to the fourth-generation iPad that the company launched last year, except the additional storage option of 64GB. But the extra 64GB comes at a bump in price. Apple’s 128GB iPad is available at $799 for the Wi-Fi-only model.If you need to have a cellular connectivity you will need to pay $929.
Apple’s 128GB Wi-Fi-only model is available to ship in 1 to 3 business days. The new version capable of connecting to AT&T’s network is interestingly also listed as available in 1 to 3 business days. The Sprint and Verizon versions on the other hand will require customers to wait for 3 to 5 business days.
IHS analyst Andrew Rassweiler last week told CNET in a statement that Apple pays about 55 cents per GBytes of additional storage in its iPads. So,extra 64GB to the iPad means about $35.20. But, the 128GB option costs $100 more than the earlier 64GB version.
Microsoft Surface Pro that is main iPad competitor is a full-fledged desktop OS capable of carrying powerfull applications like Photoshop.Surface pro is powered by an Intel Core i5 processor. It also has a 128GB of storage and features many input and output ports,and adds a fancy stylus for handwriting.
Microsoft Surface Pro is a smart device that could potentially hold a lot of appeal for many users who are stuck on old systems in workplaces where they have little flexibility to switch to entirely new platform.On the other hand iPad is for those already eager for hardware innovation.
Apple’s 128GB iPad has been launched just one week ahead of the Microsoft’s Surface Pro’s official launch. Apple being smart has taken the one spec that they suspect could actually matter and that is the high storage capacity.
