    LTE is mentioned in most iPad 3 related articles, but I wasnt so well informed about it. So I`ve done some research.

    I found great article where is described full advantage of LTE & what this technology can bring to iPad 3.
    With LTE, our iPad`s can be powerful like our desktop machines.

    Take a look:

    For me I "want" but don't need LTE. Selling my current Ipad2 in the hope LTE makes it to the next IPad
    and in AU released model.
    The longer I wait to sell the less $$ I get so it's a risk i take if 4g does not happen

    The trick with LTE is timing. The chip price is still higher than it will be in a few months, and the rollout of LTE in the nation is still very limited. The longer Apple waits to install LTE in devices, the better price they will get. A year from now, LTE will be required on tablets and smart phones. Also, LTE is going to be a battery vampire. The iPad is a good choice to bring it out because of the larger battery. Do expect to hear gripes about battery life of the 3/4G models when it does come out.

    Apple will not roll out LTE until the low power chipsets are available in quantity. Another year at least. They are not going to sacrifice battery life. Period.

    It would be very nice for LTE to be included in the iPad 3, however I can't imagine it to be a major selling point in the UK. The spectrum auction doesn't take place until the first half of 2013, and we have to wait until the end of 2017 for the LTE coverage target to be achieved by a single operator. Out of interest, I took a Autodesk Maya training course a couple of years ago, my mind was blown!

    Still not interested in LTE if battery life takes a big hit.

    This part made me laugh, because this isn't a scenario I'd give a hoot about:

    "Imagine a movie producer in Hollywood, a director in London, and a technical director in San Francisco working collaboratively in real-time on their iPads. They're pinching, zooming, adjusting and discussing high-res 3D images with little lag time. The app is industrial-strength Autodesk Maya, which costs more than $3,500. This isn't an iOS lite-version of Maya, but the real thing running on a server."

    That part made me post this thread. Because when LTE becomes reality on iPad, we finally can say that iPad is no longer device primarily made for fun & surfing.
    And that fact makes iPad very interesting for various people who would like to have their tools (programs) always with them ready to accomplish complex tasks.

    For example I use Photoshop & Illustrator (programs that requires serious hardware set-up) & it would be amazing to have them on my iPad.

    But, like you said, people who will use iPad 3 for fun LTE is nothing special :)

    LTE on an iPad is also nothing special if you have to be tethered to a power outlet...

    Ipad 3 selling point will be retina and siri.

    Ipad 4's will be LTE and better battery. That is where I will jump to it from my ipad 2...as long as jb is still available.

    A lot of places still don't have 3G in the UK and those that do are often times, very slow. This tech is not available in the UK at the moment and if it was, it would probably be a case of trying to run before they can walk. All for faster networking but in the UK at least, we ain't there yet.
