The next iPad will not support the speedier LTE wireless network, according to Chinese tech site M.I.C. Gadget:
Readers will also be pleased to know that the price has not increased either. We at M.I.C. feel that this is because the rumoured LTE will not be integrated. As indicated in our previous in depth article to Apple’s mobile strategy, we said there was a very limited market for LTE at this time. Also, the LTE chipset adds an extra cost to each unit, which the normal Qualcomm 3G chipset does not incur. We also feel that it will most likely be added to the next model, as opposed to this one. Our sources concur with us on this as well.
So, who do you trust? Generally, we’d side with the Journal and Bloomberg, but you never know. MIC Gadget has access to what it says is the screen and backing for an iPad 3, so it has some good sources of information.
