New 128GB iPad Offers Twice the Storage Capacity to Create & Enjoy Even More Incredible Content
January, 2013―Apple® today announced a 128GB* version of the fourth
generation iPad® with Retina® display. The 128GB iPad with Wi-Fi and
iPad with Wi-Fi + Cellular models provide twice the storage capacity of
the 64GB models to hold even more valuable content including photos,
documents, projects, presentations, books, movies, TV shows, music and
apps. “With more than 120 million iPads sold, it’s clear that
customers around the world love their iPads, and everyday they are
finding more great reasons to work, learn and play on their iPads rather
than their old PCs,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice
president of Worldwide Marketing. “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.”
iPad continues to have a
significant impact on business with virtually all of the Fortune 500 and
over 85 percent of the Global 500 currently deploying or testing iPad.
Companies regularly utilising 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. The over 10 million iWork® users, and
customers who rely on other incredible apps like Global Apptitude for
analysing team film and creating digital playbooks, Auria for an
incredible 48 track recording system, or AutoCAD for drafting
architectural and engineering drawings, also benefit greatly from having
the choice of an iPad with more storage capacity.
WS app for iOS was designed to give customers seamless access to their
designs anywhere, anytime,” said Amy Bunszel, vice president of AutoCAD
products for Autodesk. “These files are often large and highly detailed
so having the thin and light iPad with its Multitouch display,
integrated camera and all-day battery life, is a real advantage for iPad
users to view, edit and share their AutoCAD data.”
and capabilities of iPad give us the ability to set a new standard for
multitrack recording and editing on a mobile device,” said Rim Buntinas,
WaveMachine Labs’ CEO. “Users of the Auria app can play 48 mono or
stereo 24bit/96 kHz tracks simultaneously, record up to 24 of those
tracks simultaneously, and also edit and mix with familiar tools. With
its portability and all-day battery life, iPad has revolutionised
recording for audio professionals allowing artists to record anywhere.”
bottom line for our customers is winning football games, and iPad
running our GamePlan solution unquestionably helps players be as
prepared as possible,” said Randall Fusee, Global Apptitude Co-Founder.
“The iPad’s unbeatable combination of security, being thin and light,
having an incredible Retina display and also being powerful enough to
handle large amounts of data enables us to deliver a product that takes
film study to a new level and ultimately gives our users the best
opportunity to prepare, execute and win.”

Apple says it will sell an iPad with more memory than the current models available. Apple says that the new, full-size model comes with 128 gigabytes of memory, up from 64 gigabytes.
Nothing else has changed, so it will remain a fourth-generation iPad, which went on sale in November. The memory increase does not apply to the iPad Mini, which also went on sale in November. The new iPad will go on sale in Australia and the US on February 5 for $869 for a Wi-Fi model and $1009 for the version with mobile data access as well. In the US, the iPad will be priced at $US799 ($768) for a Wi-Fi model and $US929 for the wi-fi and mobile version. It will be available in both black and white.
Apple says it has sold more than 120 million iPads since their debut in April 2010. The latest iPads with 16, 32 and 64 gigabytes remain available, starting at $539 in Australia. The older iPad 2 starts at $429."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 Apple senior vice president of marketing Philip Schiller in a statement.
Apple quoted several web application developers who said the additional memory capacity would allow businesses to better serve clients in conceptual design, music recordings and sports strategy.
Apple's move to expand its iPad following comes as the company faces tough questions from Wall Street over its growth prospects.
Company shares lost about 12 per cent of their value last week after the company reported earnings that showed lower profit margins and smaller anticipated growth than expected.
Apple's 2013 product pipeline to feature new iPhones and all-Retina iPad and MacBook Pro lineups, according to analysts. The company will introduce a number of new iOS devices in 2013, including an inexpensive iPhone 5, upgraded iPhone 5S, Retina display-toting second-gen iPad mini and a redesigned fifth-generation iPad, among others. He goes on to say that Apple will retire the non-Retina MacBook Pro line and replace it with an all-Retina lineup at a lower price.
Apple is prepping a thinner, lighter fifth-generation iPad that shares some of its design cues with the recently released iPad Mini, according to Japanese blog Macotakara. The report was picked up and translated by 9to5Mac.
The report also calls for the next iPad Mini to be released with a Retina display, following other similar reports. The addition wouldn't be surprising, as it was a key missing feature with the original iPad Mini.
iPad sales are so astronomical that if there was a Business
Unit separate from Apple, that exclusively sold the iPad, then that particular
unit itself would be placed way ahead of many top Fortune 500 companies in terms
of revenue.In 2012 itself, iPad sales touched the $32 Billion mark amounting to
a whooping 60% of the total tablets sold. Fortune’s Philip Elmer-DeWitt stated
that if the iPad were on the Fortune 500, it would rank No.98, making it more
profitable than Nike ($20.9 billion), Macy’s ($26.4 billion) and even
McDonald’s ($27 billion).
Apple plans to launch a new iPhone version designed exclusively for
China and emerging markets that could be available in the second half of
The company is working on an iPhone for China and emerging markets that would launch in the second half of 2013, reports citing unnamed sources in Apple's supply chain. Those sources say that the iPhone will have a large display, but will come with a revamped design and be much cheaper than the company's current handset.
The latest iPhone rumour has hit the Internet, suggesting that the next incarnation of the device will be available in six colours.
A report predicting that the next iPhone release, likely to be called the iPhone 5S, will come in the same colours as the latest iPod Touch: blue, pink, yellow, silver, black and white. The next iPhone will be released in May or June. Checks indicate that the next iPhone will have more choices for customers. This entails an expansion in both the color patterns and screen sizes with the next iPhone likely called the iPhone 5S that we currently believe will be launched in May/June with certain supply production starting in March/April.
If you are with Vodafone you probably understand what a royal pain in the ass it is. For the last 2 years we have been going through hell and back. Dropping calls, no reception, lost text messages, you name it.
Since midnight this ordeal is over and all our company mobile are running on Telstra. I couldn't believe it when I looked at my phone this morning and saw 5 bars. (if you are with Vodafone you'd think 2 bars is max)
