The Apple rumor sites are buzzing today with news of a 128GB iPad. The latest tablet, 9to5 Mac claims, is going to be a fourth-generation iPad with retina display and will cost $799. The Mac news site got its information from the stock keeping unit (SKU) database of a “prominent U.S. retailer.”
The new iPad will double the storage limit of the tablet, which currently tops out at 64GB. 9to5 Mac is unsure that the new device will be commercially available, noting that Apple has previously released products that are specific to government agencies or internal uses.
Many photographers use iPads to edit and send photos on the go because of the device’s ability to send files over cellular networks when wi-fi is not available. However, one of the device's biggest limitations for photographers is its lack of storage space. If a 128GB iPad becomes available, a new generation of tablet-driven mobile darkrooms could become available for both DSLR and smartphone photographers.
