In the last quarter of 2012, Apple (News - Alert) kept its customers curiosity sated with the release of several superbly engineered gadgets led by the iPhone5 that ran on a new operating system, iOS6.
Apparently, Apple has now propagated the trend into the New Year with the release of the 128 GB iPad.
This variant of the fourth-generation iPad smashes the previous 64GB with double the capacity. With the variation in internal storage being the only difference, the iPad retains its dimensions, size and other hardware specifications.
With the increased storage capacity, users can now have double the fun delivered by the crisp graphics and overall performance of the iPad, as there is more space to store content. The extra real estate allows users to back up their extra data, obliterating the need for frequent backups to and retrieval of information from a Mac, PC or iCloud.
The price for the gadget has also increased with price quotations varying according to the type of iPad in question. The Wi-Fi version will now retail at around $799 while the cellular edition will go for a steep $929.
Parting with the extra cash just for storage space might seem absurd to somebody who has never used up the 64GB in their iPad, or doesn’t own an iPad at all. Many iPad fans, however, believe it is essential in the complete exploit of the capabilities the device has on offer.
You can now lay your hands on the digitally spacier machine by placing an order at store.apple.com, where the company promises to deliver the gadget to your doorstep within one to three business days. That’s not long enough a wait for a gadget that will store virtually all you might need while on a long and tiring trip!
The release once again marks Apple as a brand that is willing to meet the desires of its customers, regardless of how supplementary they might seem. Clearly, the 128 GB iPad is not about the cost at all; it’s about how far the Apple community is willing to go to distinguish itself.
