Apple Launches 128 GB iPad with 1-3 Day Shipping

Following last week's announcement, Apple today began offering the 128 GB iPad in the Apple online store with shipping currently listed at 1-3 business days for most models in most countries. Wi-Fi + Cellular models in the United States are currently being quoted 3-5 business days for shipping across 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.

After supply constraints dogged both the new iMac and iPad mini, analysts will be watching closely to see how Apple manages supply times for the latest addition to the company's product line. Stock levels have, however, generally been good on the full-size iPad, which has reportedly seen a significant drop in demand as consumer interest has shifted to the iPad mini.

Apple should retire the 16gb model and make the 32gb $499 and so on.

Lets pay as much as a full laptop for a device that does half of what the laptop does. Seems logical.

Is the new model supporting the S Pen?

Doubtful.
At that price I think I'd rather buy a MB Air.

Drop 16 GB

Make 32 gb entry level and the pricing should go:

32 GB 499/629
64 GB 599/729
128 GB 699/829

799/929 is just too much.

Do we really need 128GB iPhone, what are you doing with the 64gb? Or are you suggesting it for suggestion sake?
Yes, if you have a lot of music, photos, applications, some movies from iTunes or recorded on camera. That 64GB can be filled very quickly..

Do we really need more than 640KB? :-))))

Will wait for 100 dollar price cut on iPad 5 this holiday season 2013.

Why Apple? Why push a new high price instead of cutting current prices or just sitting on it till a model update?
