Apple on Tuesday confirmed plans to add 128GB storage option to its popular fourth-generation iPad 9.7” media tablet line. The new tablets are positioned for professional usage, such as engineering, content creation and productivity, and will complement the existing product line as higher-priced models.

“With more than 120 million iPads sold, it’s clear that customers around the world love their iPads, and every day they are finding more great reasons to work, learn and play on their iPads […]. 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,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing.

The manufacturer said that companies regularly utilizing large amounts of data, such as 3D CAD files, X-rays, film edits, music tracks, project blueprints, training videos and service manuals all benefit from having a greater choice of storage options for iPad. Office applications, multimedia content creation and AutoCAD for drafting architectural and engineering drawings, also benefit greatly from having the choice of an iPad with more storage capacity.

The new 128GB versions of the fourth generation iPad will be available starting Tuesday, February 5, in black or white, for a suggested retail price of $799 for the iPad with Wi-Fi model and $929 for the iPad with Wi-Fi + Cellular model. All versions of the 128GB iPad will be sold through the Apple online store, Apple retail stores and select Apple authorized resellers.

Apple iPad fourth-generation features 9.7” display with 2048*1536 resolution (264ppi) and is based on the A6X (dual-core ARM Cortex-A15, quad-core PowerVR graphics core, 32nm process technology). The tablet features 1GB LPDDR2 RAM, 16GB/32GB/64GB NAND flash storage, 5MP rear camera with backside illumination, 1.2MP front camera, 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, accelerometer, gyroscope, GPS/Glonass (cellular version only), “world-ready” 3G, HSPA+ (21Mb/s), DC-HSPA (42Mb/s) and 4G/LTE (73Mb/s). The iPad 4 shares the form-factor with previous-generation tablet and comes in steel and glass design that is 9.4mm thick and weighs up to 662 grams/1.46 pounds.

According to Apple, the fourth generation iPad provides up to twice the CPU performance and up to twice the graphics performance of the iPad 3, while delivering 10 hours of battery life. Other new features include a FaceTime HD camera, twice the Wi-Fi performance when compared to previous iPad models and support for additional 4G/LTE carriers worldwide, which essentially enables nearly global support for 4G/LTE.

It's about time Apple has a more resolute Front camera for teleconferencing. I am excited about all of the secifications except one: ONLY a 5 megapixel rear camera?

iPad 5 should be out in 2013. This launch is lame and the $800 price is ridiculous for a tablet when they could have just added a flash card reader slot.
