Yesterday Apple confirmed rumors that have been circling cyberspace in the last 2 months about an Apple Tablet PC with a bigger storage capacity than any other tablet on the market – the tech giant unveiled the iPad 4 128 Gb.
The Apple iPad has become part of many people’s daily lives since it was first introduced in 2010. The iPad is the world’s top selling tablet PC. Over 100 million units have been sold so far globally.
According to Apple, the iPad 4 will be perfect for companies or individuals that regularly use large amounts of data like 3D CAD files, X-rays, film edits, music tracks, project blueprints, training videos and service manuals. The iPad 4 128 GB features a 9.7 inch Retina display and has a Apple A6X chip. It also has LTE support for bands that are currently used in South Africa.
Vodacom might not be listed as a supported operator on Apple’s website. However, the Apple Mobile iOS operating system was recently updated and introduced LTE support for 36 mobile operators around the world. Great news for South African iPad users is that Vodacom is one of those carriers.
The Apple iPad 4 128 Gb will be available in White and Black and will be available in the United States from the 5th of February 2013. Rumor has it that an iPad 4 which only supports Wi-Fi will cost around $799 (+/- R7,200) and a model that supports mobile data will cost around $929 (+/- R8,300). No South African release date or pricing has been announced yet.
This announcement by Apple is proof that technology is developing faster that you can say “Yahtzee!”. I wouldn’t be surprised is we see the release of an Apple iPad or tablet PC with at least 1 TB capacity by 2015.
