In an uncharacteristic move, Apple revealed its latest iPad this morning via press release as opposed to staging a media circus. The new addition to the fourth generation lineup announced in fall 2012 is less an upgrade than it is a modification, with fourth gen tablet horsepower pairing with a 128GB storage capacity, the highest that Apple has ever offered for iPad.
The new iPad is otherwise the same as what's currently available, sporting an A6X processor and a 9.7-inch Retina display. It seems that Apple is targeting data-dependent businesses as customers, with the press release going on to run through some of the top apps that crunch through storage space quickly. A 128GB capacity doubles the current high of 64GB.
This new iPad goes on sale on February 5, 2013. It will be available in both black and white, at $799 for a Wi-Fi-only tablet and $929 for Wi-Fi/4G.
