Rumor: 4G LTE is 'good to go' for Apple's third-gen iPad
“Just one more day. Just one more day.” That’s how Apple enthusiasts may go to bed tonight, day-dreaming about the March 7th event when the Cupertino company will finally showcase its newest creation – the next gen iPad 3. Rumors have been spreading like weeds about what this wonder device is going to possess. One of the persistent rumors that keeps coming out is that the next gen tablet will be sporting 4G connectivity. Now iMore, the site who first kick-started this rumor, comes with another statement – the LTE in the new iPad is ready and “good to go”. It will most certainly be present at the grand unveiling.
Some rumors about the 4G LTE were spread around by The Wall Street Journal last month which announced that the next generation device will sport a wireless radio which will fit perfectly with the high-speed 4G networks that big time carriers like Verizon and AT&T provide in the U.S.
Verizon and AT&T are the only two U.S. providers of LTE networks but they have an impressive amount of subscribers put together. At 200 million for Verizon and 74 million from AT&T, that is quite massive, indeed.
Among other persuasive rumors we stumble upon some of those same ones preaching the upgrade of the processor, the improved HD Retina Display and an improved camera. The best rumored addition to some folks would be Siri – the virtual assistant we have been growing so fond of lately.
So far, Apple has managed to dominate the tablet market in every way possible and with the addition of this new device we’re pretty sure it is going to be doing it better than ever!
