128GB iPad now available in the Apple Store

Last week, Apple officially announced a 128GB version of the fourth-generation iPad, set to go on sale today, and the company has kept true to their promise. You can now grab one of these bad boys starting at $799 for the WiFi-only version, or $929 for the WiFi+LTE variant. The WiFi-only model has a 1-3 day ship time, while the LTE model also has a 1-3 day ship time for AT&T, while other carriers have a 3-5 day ship time.

However, we wouldn’t be surprised if those ship times increase ever so slightly within the next couple of days, so if you’re thinking about biting the bullet and want to buy the most expensive, top-of-the-line iPad yet, better hurry and do it today before shipping times increase to weeks instead of days.

Aside from the increase in storage capacity, there’s nothing different about the hardware. It’s still got the same A6X processor running iOS 6.1, as well as a FaceTime HD camera, WiFi a/b/g/n, and Bluetooth 4.0 for all your wireless needs. The 128GB model won’t be replacing any of the current size options, but rather just being tacked on at the end.

While many people would scoff at the idea of 128GB in an iPad, we can’t say that not a lot of people would use it. Many professions in the business world would benefit from the extra capacity, including photographers, video editors, contractors, and maybe even universities, but don’t take our word for it — decide for yourself!
