New iPad 3 rumor hints that 4G LTE is in the cards

Technology News Blog

Harder, better, faster, stronger? The new iPad 3 devices on their way to store shelves could be all of those, with emphasis on faster. According to the Wall Street Journal, the new iPad 3 will come ready to run on fourth-generation LTE networks.

Specifically, according to the report, both AT&T and Verizon will be getting iPads capable of running on their faster 4G wireless data networks. These iPads will also be capable of running on 3G networks — an absolute necessity, given the number of people still outside of 4G network range.

It's unknown whether or not Sprint and T-Mobile will be getting a version of the iPad as well. Both carriers declined to comment for the WSJ story.

While the WSJ has proven a reliable source of insider Apple info in the past, it's important to keep in mind that this information has not yet been confirmed by Apple. Until we have confirmation, any report on the next generation of the hit tablet should be taken with a grain of salt.
