Apple's new will have a capacity of 128 gigabytes compared with the current model, which comes with different memory capacities but has a maximum of 64 gigabytes.

The new iPad model will go on sale on February 5, with a suggested price of $799 for the iPad with Wi-Fi capacity and $929 for iPad with Wi-Fi and Cellular capacity.

The company has run out of ideas.

Having started out with Apple (IIC - great machine) and then switching to IBM, I feel I have some perspective. I just bought an Ipad, and I have to say that it doesn't matter how much memory it has. I did not realize it was such a limited, frustrating, anti-productivity device. Sorry I spent the money.
