Apple officially announced the 128GB iPad with Retina Display. This new version of iPad 4 with Wi-Fi and iPad with Wi-Fi + Cellular models provides double the storage capacity of the 64GB models, and can therefore handle more photos, documents, presentations, projects, ebooks, music, movies and TV shows.

According to a report at Apple.com on Tuesday, January 29, 2013, the 128GB version of the fourth-generation iPad will be available starting Tuesday, February 5, in black or white models. They will be sold at the Apple Online Store, Apple retail stores, and various authorized Apple resellers.

“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 rather than their old PCs.” Philip Schiller, Apple‘s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, was quoted in the report.

“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.” Schiller added, with the 128GB iPad now having the highest storage capacity.

The iPad 4, which was released back in November last year, sports a 9.7-inch Retina display, Apple-designed A6X chip, FaceTime HD camera, 10 hours of battery life, and the new iOS 6.1, which now includes support for additional LTE networks worldwide.

As Apple has noted, the 128GB iPad has a suggested retail price (SRP) of $799 for the Wi-Fi model, and $929 for the Wi-Fi + Cellular model, making them $100 more expensive than the 64GB models. They are $200 and $300 more expensive than the 32GB and 16GB versions, respectively.

And while some observers say that the price seemed to be reasonable enough for the high-storage capacity, one question remains. Who needs the 128GB iPad?
