Apple began offering the 128 GB iPad in the Apple online store today. Shipping is currently listed as 1-3 business days for most models. Wi-Fi + Cellular models are being quoted at 3-5 business days for all three carriers.
The new model, offering double the storage capacity of the previous top-of-the-line model, carries a $100 premium over the 64 GB versions and is available in all four combinations of black/white and Wi-Fi/Wi-Fi + Cellular models.
The 128 GB model, which was announced last week, comes as supply constraints have dogged both the new iMac and iPad Mini. Analysts will be watching to see how Apple handles the supply chain for this latest addition to the iPad lineup.
We’ll also be watching to see if the 128 GB iPad will re-ignite interest in the full-size iPad, as the line has experienced a significant drop in sales as consumer interest has focused on the iPad mini.
