Is a 128GB 'Ultimate' Apple iPad on the way?

One new report indicates that a larger-capacity iPad could ship sometime in the next few months. 

An Apple logo is reflected in the screen of a new Apple iPad at an electronics store in Mumbai in this April 27, 2012 file photograph. Word surfaced today that Apple is preparing some kind of "Ultimate iPad."

Time was when Apple released a new tablet computer every year. The original iPad was followed roughly 12 months later by the iPad 2 and a year after that came the "new iPad," otherwise known as the iPad 3. But last year, Apple upended the annual schedule, and launched the fourth-generation iPad the same year as the third-generation iPad. We say all of this as a kind of pre-amble to the news today that Apple is preparing some kind of "Ultimate iPad." 

According to 9 to 5 Mac, which cites SKUs obtained from a "high-profile US retailer," the "Ultimate iPad" may simply be a 128GB version of the current iPad – in other words, not a completely redesigned iPad, but an iPad with a colossal amount of memory. (The largest iPad currently gets "only" 64GB.)

The SKUs provided by 9 to 5 Mac show two price points: $799 and $929 – possibly the cost of the Wi-Fi-only and LTE versions
