Will the New iPad 3 Have 4G Connectivity?

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012

The new Apple iPad 3 has many consumers who are anxiously awaiting its arrival, watching the news waiting to learn more about the device. Consumers want to know what features it will have, when it will go on sale and any other information they can find. Fans are dying for any piece of news or update about the new iPad 3.

Recently, new information surfaced as The Wall Street Journal reported, “Verizon Wireless 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”. They went on to say “Apple Inc. appears to be planning to announce the latest version of its tablet computer in the first week of March, according to another person briefed on the matter.”

This is exciting news for consumers who can’t wait to get their hands on this device. They’re wait may soon be over and on top of that, you may be able to get 4G connectivity if you use either Verizon Wireless or AT&T service. That’s great news! Now the question is will other services like Sprint and T Mobile carry the device, too? That’s something we’ll have to wait to find out.

Added Features the iPad 3 May Have

There are a few more rumors going around about the device, too. For example, the new iPad may be equipped with a quad-core chip and a high-resolution Retina Display. These improvements, if rumors are true, can turn this already anticipated device into one of the hottest items to hit the market in 2012.

According to PCWorld.com, since the iPad 2 went on sale in March of 2011, Apple has sold more than 43 million devices. That’s an amazing number of iPads! If the next version has all of the added features it’s expected to have, there is a good chance Apple will exceed that number in 2012.

What Took Apple So Long?

Now, if you’re like a lot of people you may be wondering, what took Apple so long to add the 4G technology to their system if this information is true? After all, Android rivals have already used this technology in their devices. What were they waiting on? It’s believed it has a lot to do with the battery life of the device. Apparently, having 4G requires so much more energy to run that it cuts back on the battery life dramatically.

If that’s the case, then you have to wonder if Apple found a way to solve this problem. If not, what kind of battery life will consumers get with the new iPad? One of the great things about this device is the ability to take it with you and use it anywhere, even in areas where there is no access to a power source.

Having this mobility and convenience is one of the main things that made this devices so popular in the first place. The Apple iPad can normally run up to 10 hours on battery power before you have to recharge. If making the leap to 4G is going to cut down on the life of the battery, is this something consumers are going to be happy with? Would you be happy with less battery life if it means having 4G technology?
