Apple is continually focusing the iPad for the enterprise and starting on February 5, Apple will be introducing new 128GB versions of the fourth generation iPad. Retail pricing will be $799 (US) for the iPad with Wi-Fi model and $929 (US) for the iPad with Wi-Fi + Cellular model. Today's press release states that the iPad continues to have a significant impact on business and virtually all of the Fortune 500 and 85 percent of the Global 500 are currently deploying or testing the iPad. The increase in storage is to support companies that are regularly using large files associated with 3D CAD files, X-rays, film edits, project blueprints, music and more. Obviously Apple listened to their customers like AutoCAD who were quoted in Apple's press release. Amy Bunszel, vice president of AutoCAD products for Autodesk stated that AutoCAD "files are often large and highly detailed," and so the new iPad with 128GB will be a real advantage for iPad users to view, edit and share their AutoCAD data. Apple takes the lead on storage capacity on tablets, as Microsoft's RT tablet is stuck at 64GB and the Samsung Galaxy Tab is at the bottom of the pile with a paltry 16GB.
