Why not? The iPad could use a 128G version, and if they can fit 64 in an iPhone, surely they can easily fit twice that in an iPad that's like 6 times the size.
And fact is, nobody knows one way or another until Tim Cook says so on Wednesday.

I'm skeptical that Apple can hold the price line on the 3 if it does contain the retina display and gorilla glass - or even w/o the gorilla. It's not like the 2 cost Apple $3 to manufacture as many seem to think. There is a healthy markup for sure, but if it cost such a small amount to make, then we'd have seen Androids at much lower price points than the iPad. That the Android can't take share from Apple on price implies that these things don't have vast margins in them.
I can't see the margin great enough in the 2 to make the 3 the same price points but with the improved display.

Apple is still bound by economics. 64GB of NAND Flash is relatively cheap in the quantities Apple buys (and pre-pays for). 128GB 24nm NAND Flash isn't so cheap. I don't think Apple will go to that density until the prices drop considerably.
