Apple has hopped on the 4G LTE bandwagon. Leapfrogging over the iPhone 4S, which runs on 3G, the new iPad can now wirelessly connect to the fastest cellular networks – compliments of AT&T and Verizon in the US, as well as Rogers, Bell, and Telus abroad.
In order to run 4G in the US, iPads will be divided between AT&T and Verizon. 3G will still be available, just in case.
Apple’s new device can also be turned into a personal Wi-Fi hotspot if carriers support that option. And somehow, Apple says that battery life is about nine hours when 4G runs – the same for the iPad 2 on 3G.
