And just like that, the iPad 3 rumors have begun to heat up on another level. Of course we have been seeing those recent rumors dealing with the higher-resolution display, however The Wall Street Journal is now stating that the iPad 3 will come with 4G LTE connectivity and be available with both Verizon Wireless and AT&T. Granted, the current iPad is already available with both of those carriers, but the real bump will be going from 3G to 4G. The details are coming by way of the always knowledgeable “people familiar with the matter” who had this to say;

“Verizon Communications Inc. and AT&T Inc. will sell a version of the coming iPad that runs on their newest fourth-generation wireless networks,”

Otherwise, the iPad 3 announcement is expected to take place during the first week of March. And lastly, for those who like and hope to have 4G but live and/or play in a location that does not yet have access — rest assured in knowing that “when LTE isn’t available, the new iPad will default to a slower network technology.”
