128GB version with Wi-Fi is selling for, down from the normal retail price of $429.
That means you’re getting four times the amount of space you get in the 32GB model for the 32GB model’s normal price. If you plan on stuffing your tablet with lots of games, movies, and large apps, this is the smart way to go. File and app sizes are getting larger all the time, and more room ensures your device will see a few years’ worth of use.
