SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 29 (Xinhua) -- Apple on Tuesday announced to add a 128 GB version of the fourth generation iPad to its tablet lineup.

The new device will be available starting Feb. 5, in black or white, for a starting price of 799 U.S. dollars with Wi-Fi only model.

Apple pitched the new offering as an option for schools, businesses and arts professionals.

"With twice the storage capacity and an unparalleled selection of over 300,000 native iPad apps, enterprises, educators and artists have even more reasons to use iPad for all their business and personal needs," said Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of worldwide marketing in a press release.

With the higher capacity iPad, Apple will go head-to-head with Microsoft's business-targeted Windows 8 tablets, like Surface Pro which has 128 GB storage options and is capable of running Windows desktop applications.

Also on Tuesday, Microsoft announced to launch Office 365 Home Premium, a reinvented version of its Office 2013 with features like touch controls, automatic updates and online access to files from several devices.

However, the software, offered as a paid subscription service, will not work on Apple's iPhone, iPad or smartphones and tablets running Google's Android system.
