Major companies were telling Apple that they needed larger storage space to really implement iPad effectively. This increase in storage is Apple's response and is being accepted very well by companies. They will sell more iPads to their corporate clients with this feature. This storage also enables corporate customers the ability to provide more HD videos and photos. Trust me, this is not the BIG thing Apple will do this year. They will have a couple of really cool toys coming in 2013... just wait. For those who think Apple has lost it...you're gonna eat those words.
