The existence of a 4G LTE iPad 3 has been long-rumored. Now it’s confirmed, and potentially only two weeks away. According to a report from the Wall Street Journal, Apple will launch the iPad 3 on March 7th and will feature 4G LTE connectivity, and be available on both Verizon and AT&T networks.
Verizon Communications Inc. and AT&T Inc. will sell a version of the coming iPad that runs on their newest fourth-generation wireless networks, according to people familiar with the matter, as the battle to cash in on big investments in mobile broadband heats up.
Apple Inc. appears to be planning to announce the latest version of its tablet computer in the first week of March, according to another person briefed on the matter.
Whether other carriers will also sell the device couldn’t be learned.
Where LTE connectivity is unavailable, the iPad 3 will revert to “slower network technology”.
