The WSJ says LTE iPad 3 is a go for Verizon and AT&T

By , Feb 13, 2012

One of the most controversial rumors regarding the upcoming iPad 3 has been whether or not the tablet will feature 4G technology. While countries like the US and Canada have growing LTE networks, others won’t see the tech for at least a year.

Tonight, the Wall Street Journal seemingly puts an end to the speculation. The world-renown newspaper is reporting that it has confirmed that both Verizon and AT&T flavored iPad 3s will include the next-generation wireless technology…

The WSJ writes:

“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 is expected to unveil its new tablet on Wednesday, March 7th, and should be available for purchase sometime shortly after that.

Is anyone else excited to hear that the iPad 3 will be LTE-capable?

    If AT&T’s plan is to charge more for 4G, not interested. I’ll get an iPad 2 for $399.

      I personally don’t care about LTE on any iPad as I dont take my iPad too many places and if I do need internet I just use MyWi to tether. I am on the 2GB Plan but never even come close to using a 1 GB cuz I have wifi at home and when I go to school at night.

    Any news of a MacBook Pro 2012? I’m planning to buy one but not sure if I should wait for a new release.

    I’ve an iPad 1 3G for over a year and a half. I have never once used the 3G. What a waste of money. I would never buy another 3G or LTE iPad again.
