Apple rumoured to be producing 4G iPad for UK
11 Oct 2012
Enhanced device should be heading to EE network
The big launch for Apple ahead of the Christmas rush is almost certainly the iPad Mini. But another iPad is also said to be on the horizon, a 4G model for the UK market.
Not content with bagging the iPhone 5 for its 4G network, it now seems likely that EE will get its hands on a 4G Apple tablet too, as Apple introduces a slight refresh to the iPad for the UK. It's not a huge update, but it is a significant one. The iPad will be offered with the same 1800MHz 4G chip as the iPhone, as well as the latest eight-pin connector, also found on that iPhone 5.
It would certainly be something of a coup for EE if it got its hands on what would be an exclusive iPad (at least until next year) and as such, the company would probably be charging a premium to get hold of one. How much isn't clear (no 4G tariffs are available as yet), nor is the date for its arrival.
But with Apple rumoured to be launching the iPad Mini on 2 November, that date could be one to watch.
