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.
Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD 8.9 which was unveiled at a media event in September to take on Apple’s full-sized iPad and Google Nexus 10 finally ships today.
For the first time since Apple launched the iPad, it is going to face stiff competition from bigger Android-based tablets like Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD 8.9 and Google’s Nexus 10.
Lightning Accessories: Elevation Dock Updated for iPhone 5, JBL Speakers, and a Belkin Keyboard for the iPad Mini
New Lightning accessories for the iPhone 5, iPad 4, and iPad mini are coming out every week it seems. It was tough going there for a while. I’ll be using an adapter for many of my accessories for the foreseeable future (like my alarm clock/speaker dock), but there is hope in sight with a pair of JBL speaker docks, a keyboard folio just for the iPad mini, and the official iPhone 5 version of the popular Elevation dock.
As expected, some customers who had pre-ordered their LTE iPad mini and iPad 4 are reporting that they’ve received their shipments earlier today or seing their packages out for delivery, according to reports on MacRumors and 9to5Mac.
Analysts predicted, and rightly so, that with the launch of the iPad mini, some people would opt for one of those over an iPad. While that’s turned out to be true to some extent, it’s not the iPad who should really be worried—it’s the Windows PC.
Oh who doesn’t like a nice, juicy Apple Store rumor, huh? Word is from 9to5Mac that the LTE models of the 4th Generation iPad (LTE iPad 4) are on the shelves at Apples Stores, but they aren’t for sale yet. So the question is…when.
During a Reddit IAmA event in October, Microsoft engineer Steve Bathiche had claimed that Surface RT has a better display than iPad’s Retina display.
He explained that while screen resolution was one of component of the perceived detail, the true measure of resolvability of a screen called Modulation Transfer Function (MTF), not Pixels. He claimed that during their tests, many people saw more details on Surface RT than on the iPad with more resolution.
If you pre-ordered a cell-capable/LTE/cellular 4th generation iPad, you could have it in your hands on Friday. At least that’s what a few people are reporting this morning.
