CUPERTINO, California—Apple says it will sell an iPad with more memory than the current models available.

Apple Inc. said Tuesday 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 the US on Feb. 5 for $799 for a Wi-Fi model and $929 with cellular data access as well.

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 $499.

    I have an iPad and I love it. Am I likely to buy a 128 GB iPad? Probably not any time soon. But when an iPad is used in the medical field and you bring out a tablet of an X-ray to a patient or you pull up their CT scan or even lab results and move through them with the patient in real time, that is quite revolutionary. I am sure it will all improve over time. Not every device is for everyone. Find what works for you and use it.

    128 mem, really? can the ios use this so called ‘mem’ in fetching data from its registries?

    Back to basic tayo. RAM- random access memory -dito ginagawa/kinukumpyut ng kompyuter ang kanyang trabaho. ang mga nakasalang dito ay temporaryu lang dahil pag pinatay ang komp. mawawala ito. ROM- read only memory- ito ang storage tulad ng mge nabanggit ditong cd, dvd hard disk atbp. dito naka lagay ang mga programs o file para lulutuin sa RAM.
