LTE iPad mini & iPad 4 Goes on Sale at AT&T, Sprint & Verizon

As expected, Sprint, Verizon and AT&T have announced the availability of 4G LTE-capable iPad mini and the 4th generation iPad in their retail stores today.

Strangely, Apple is yet to announce when the LTE capable iPad mini and 4th generation iPad will be available in Apple retail stores and its authorized resellers.

But reports indicate that the store launch is imminent as the 4G LTE iPad mini and iPad 4 are already on the shelves at some Apple stores.

Yesterday, customers who had pre-ordered their LTE iPad mini and iPad 4 started receiving their devices.

When Apple unveiled the iPad mini and the 4th generation iPad last month, it announced that the Wi-Fi models will be available in stores starting November 2nd, while the cellular models will be available from mid November.

Here’s a look at the data plans offered by AT&T, Sprint and Verizon:

    My question is how does AT&T LTE iPad Mini (data model) different from Verizon & Sprint LTE iPad Mini (data model)?

  • Rafael Colon

    None available in houston area so far. Checked many apple stores and all carriers.

    Its so nice that I raced to buy my ipad mini in the first 15 minutes of it being offered just so that it’ll ship the day after everyone that ordered it after me. I won’t be getting it until 4 days after people that didn’t even preorder it at all!

    Also, those are not the data plans that I saw on apples site before I ordered it. If those are accurate I will definitely be returning my AT&T ipad if it ever shows up. There is no way I’m paying $70 for a 4GB plan on an inferior network!

      It’s actually even worse pricing for AT&T. It’s “$70.00/mo.
      $10.00/mo. For each tablet”. So $80 for 4GB of data on a network that is worse than the one I can get for almost 1/3 of the price.

    I setup a return for the AT&T ipad I pre-ordered (even though it hasn’t even arrived yet) and bought a Verizon one from the local Apple Store. I did this because of the data plans listed on here (and what I saw on the carrier sites) but when setting up my Verizon iPad I’m getting completely different plans than the ones listed here. The options it’s showing are 1GB for $20, 2GB for $30, 5GB for $50, and 10GB for $80.
