128GB iPad Now Available In the Apple Store

G.Skill Launches "World’s Fastest" DDR3 32GB Memory Kit

Intel Confirms More Dual-Core Androids Will Be At MWC

128GB iPad Now Available In the Apple Store

Last week, Apple officially announced a 128GB version of the fourth-generation iPad, set to go on sale today, and the company has kept true to their promise.

You can now grab one of these bad boys starting at $799 for the WiFi-only version, or $929 for the WiFi+LTE variant. The WiFi-only model has a 1-3 day ship time, while the LTE model also has a 1-3 day ship time for AT&T, while other carriers have a 3-5 day ship time.

Aside from the increase in storage capacity, there’s nothing different about the hardware. It’s still got the same A6X processor running iOS 6.1, as well as a FaceTime HD camera, WiFi a/b/g/n, and Bluetooth 4.0 for all your wireless needs. The 128GB model won't be replacing any of the current size options, but rather just being tacked on at the end.

Intel Confirms More Dual-Core Androids Will Be At MWC

Intel has said that it'll reveal more dual-core Android smartphones at the Mobile World Congress, which commences in Barcelona towards the end of February.

The chip maker will use MWC as a platform to showcase smartphones based on its low-end Lexington Atom Z2420 processor targeted at emerging markets. It'll also be showing off new ultrabooks and tablets.

"Specifically, Intel will showcase its latest smartphone technologies and devices running the Android platform, including a new dual core, dual graphics platform, as well as OEM and service provider-supported devices based on the company’s new Intel AtomTM Z2420 platform targeted at emerging markets," the company said.

Last September, Intel revealed the Motorola RAZR i, followed by the unveiling of the Lenovo K900 smartphone during CES 2013 (head on over to our hands-on impressions). More recently, it revealed the Yolo handset aimed for the Kenya market. It also announced a partnership with Acer to reveal the Liquid C1 smartphone.
