Doubles capacity limit of existing models.

Apple said on Tuesday that it will sell a version of its iPad tablet computer with 128 gigabytes of storage, which is twice the capacity of its existing models.

Apple, which has sold more than 120 million iPads so far, said that the new iPad will go on sale February 5 in the United States, in black or white, for a suggested retail price of US$799 for the iPad with just Wi-Fi model, and US$929 for the version that also has a cellular wireless connection.

The statement did not reveal when the new model would be available in Australia.
