Update: This report turned out to be correct, and the 128MB version of the iPad 4 is now available.

Apple is reportedly going to tweak its tablet offerings, possible adding a 128GB version of the iPad 4.

Apple iPadAccording to the source of this rumor, this device won’t be the iPad 5. Rather it will be a new version of the current 9.7-inch iPad.

The model will be priced at $800 for the WiFi-only model and $930 for the 4G one. This supports the theory that it’s going to have 128GB of storage — iPad prices start at $500 for a WiFi-only version with 16GB of storage, and increase by $100 by doubling the capacity. The 32GB one is $600, the 64GB version is $700 and, logically a 128GB model would be $800. Adding 4G support to each of these adds $130.

Bumping Up the Specs

Apple introduced the iPad 4 because the iPad 3 was seeing somewhat sales, as potential buyers didn’t think it was enough of an improvement over the iPad 2. Apple is reportedly still experiencing somewhat weak sales of its full-size tablet, and an increase of the storage capacity might be intended to change that.

Exactly when this new version is going to be released is not yet known.
