WSJ: Apple to add 4G LTE to third-generation iPad

post #1 of 55
Thread Starter 
A new report claims Apple will announce a third-generation iPad in early March that is capable of operating on 4G LTE networks from Verizon and AT&T.

People familiar with the matter told The Wall Street Journal that Apple is planning on announcing the 4G-capable iPad during the first week of March. The device would reportedly then go on sale with AT&T and Verizon.

That lines up with earlier reports that have suggested the same time frame. One recent rumor claimed the announcement would come on March 7 and was quickly backed up by The Loop's Jim Dalrymple.

The Journal was unable to learn whether the other major carriers in the U.S., Sprint and T-Mobile, would also sell Apple's next iPad, though it did point out that AT&T and Verizon are currently the only two operators in the U.S. that run LTE networks. Verizon got an early lead with its 4G network and now reaches 200 million people with the service. AT&T has worked to catch up to its rival, covering 74 million people at the end of 2011.

Sources also said that the next iPad will resort to slower network technology when LTE isn't available. AT&T sold the original iPad iPad Wi-Fi + 3G in 2010, while Verizon sold the iPad with Wi-Fi and a Mobile Hotspot router. The second-generation iPad, released last year, was capable of running on both Verizon and AT&T from day one.

Though rumors that Apple would transition the iPhone and iPad to LTE in 2012 have persisted for some time, evidence that the company will make the leap next month has mounted in recent months. Bloomberg claimed last month that the next-generation iPad would feature LTE, as well as a high-resolution Retina Display and a quad-core processor.

Details surrounding the next iPad have also appeared to leak out through purported components for the next-generation tablet. One recent report featured images of three parts, including the display, the dock connector and the rear panel, fitted together to show subtle differences between the iPad 2 and the so-called "iPad 3."




The alleged parts reportedly showed that the third-generation iPad will be slightly thicker and feature a different camera mount. The display in question was said to be a Sharp QXGA 9.7-inch LCD display with a resolution of 2,048 by 1,536 pixels.

Rumors of a 4G-compatible "iPad 3" have also gained steam after pictures of new LTE micro-SIM cards from AT&T emerged late last week. Apple's current iPhone and 3G-capable iPad use micro-SIM cards.




Apple CEO Tim Cook said last April that the company had held off on 4G for its devices because the "first generation" of LTE chipsets required too many compromises.

I really hope it's not two separate LTE models for AT&T and Verizon. That would totally suck.

I think full world mode is here to stay with Apple but I do expect them to be boxed for different carriers for AT&T, Verizon and Sprint in the US because the basebands will have to be flashed for the different CDMA carriers.

Better hope that Verizon upgrades their network. A friend of mine has a 3g Verizon iPad. We were one mile north of Downtown LA and the signal was horribly slow. I hear Verizon 4G is pretty good. Better hope you have a good signal with 4g.

The RAZR maxxx gets over 20 hours on LTE in a super slim package (less than 9mm)

So one more thing....you are wrong. Goodnight

Maybe they can save most of the battery life with intelligent network switching - LTE isn't going to be available everywhere, so if it's using 3G most of the time anyway, there probably won't be much of a performance hit. Although, knowing Apple, they'll want even those few percent who live in constant access of LTE to have good battery life, so I'm sure it'll still be close to their 10 hour mark.

Does anyone remember how much of a battery-life hit the iPhone had going from 2G to 3G? Was it enough to cause an uproar?

You need to focus on better reading comprehension. The Droid RAZR MAXX is listed by Motorola to get up to 21.5 hours of continuous talk time.

Guess which network component is responsible for calls on a CMDA-based phone? You don't know? It's CDMA. 2G connectivity. Not 4G. Not LTE. Not Data. You are wrong.
So where is your proof that you can 20 hours of data on LTE? You don't have any, huh? You are wrong.


Also note that thinness doesn't mean squat here as components take up space in the physical world so you need to consider not one... not two... but three dimensions. But to make that even easier you can just look at the battery's mAh to get an idea about its energy capacity. You are wrong.

The Droid RAZR has a 1750 mAh battery and is said to last about half as long as the Droid RAZR MAXX with a 3300 mAh battery. They both have 1.2Hz Cortex-A9s, 1GB RAM, 4.3" qHD Super-AMOLED displays so there is no magic that Moto has learned about power usage since the first Droid RAZR except perhaps in figuring out how to cram more stuff in the same space through better engineering... but wait, they didn't, they merely added weight and thickness to the already large volume device because they cared so little about battery life that the first Droid RAZR was lambasted for being such a useless all-day device.

So one more thing....you are wrong. Goodnight.

Nice... looking forward to the speed and hoping that Apple via Qualcomm has solved the LTE battery drain issues. *fingers crossed*

(... now let's see that LTE iPhone this fall)

Probably no need to worry as both my Galaxy Nexus and Xoom LTE are very fast on LTE in the LA area.

Hopefully Verizon & ATT can handle the load if Apple puts it in their IPHONE 5 and IPAD. I would think that they would as others will in the upcoming months.

Hard to get excited about LTE when everything has gone to data caps. What's the point? I guess if your current speed sucks then it's something to get excited about. With data caps and greedy wireless carriers I have zero enthusiasm for LTE.

I don't get your point. This webpage doesn't grow in size simply because I access it from LTE instead of HSDPA. The upload and downloads are faster and the latency is lower. That's a good thing.

The problem arises with users who are now using their device more because they are waiting around less for data to be sent and received. But having soo much extra time on my hands from having faster internet is a problem I'd like to have.

Eventually, when the number of internet capable devices tips in favour of LTE we will see large webpages and higher def video as the default. That's progress and you'll have to deal with that even if you want to stay on CDMA2000/HSDPA or EDGE/GPRS.

Since I always agree with you, I'll have to let you in on what I just flashed upon. Along with these essentials you mention, LTE-like speeds out in the world on a largish handheld portable high resolution screen will be the most transformational information technology yet deployed. It will be a large iPhone, "just" a very large iPhone. Fasten your seat belts, a smooth and fast ride ahead.

Again with the reading comprehension. Are you just that dimwitted or are you just really bad at trolling?

"Yes, the Razr Maxxs battery life is far better than that of the Razr. I actually still have my Razr from when I reviewed it, and was able to test both phones alongside each other. But before I get into the results, let me tell you about how we tested it. We have a battery test program here that continuously searches Google for images. Once one page loads, another pops up. I can close out of the browser at any time to load apps (which I did), make calls (did that, too), browse the web (yep, that too), and watch some videos.

But the most important thing to remember when I give you these numbers is that both phones, the Maxx and the original Razr, were in constant use from the beginning of the test until they died. No locked screen. No minute to catch their breath.

The Razr lasted for four and a half hours with constant (and varied) use.

The Maxx, on the other hand, stuck with me for eight hours and fifteen minutes. For those of you following along at home, thats almost double the battery life. If I use the phone like a normal human being (read: not Google Image searching random names constantly), it lasted a full day and on into the next day before it needed a charge around 11 am. This is with Wifi and 4G LTE in use. So almost double the battery life for almost double the battery capacity for a much thicker device than the previous model... exactly what I said and proof that what you said is wrong.

you No doubt read the sentence right after your highlight about using the device like a normal human. unless you have your device on constantly fetching Google images, like what they did to get 8 hours, then you will easily surpass 20 hours. real world. it's right there. read it. the very. next. sentence.

and by the way, it's about 1.4 know thicker. your definition of much thicker seems kinda stretching it.

this device shows that 4g can be done in the real world and have the battery last all day long. again. real world.

p.s. how am I trolling? I'm showing that 4g can be in the iPad 3 without you worrying about 10 second battery life. if anything your original comment was trolling

You are trolling because you are purposely ignoring the fact that it only got 8 hours from some light internet use with 4G enable and being switched out for WiFi, and for ignoring that 20 hours is only for voice calling which is done over '2G'.

The sentence right after my highlight compares to the Droid RAZR and notes what I noted and you overlooked that it's about double with a battery that is double the size.

Or maybe your really are that stupid, in that case enjoy what is likely about 5 hours of LTE internet usage. It also appears you haven't understood what standby and idle times are for phones. The RAZR MAXX gets 380 hours so why not quite that as how long you can use it between charges like DaHarder does.

what the? the article clearly said the 8 hours was

the device on
the screen on
a webpage constantly refreshing every second for 8 hours
No lockscreen
No rest.
Nobody uses their iPad like that. if you stare at a screen for 8 straight hours you are destroying your eyes first, and second, what are you doing that you are constantly fetching information for 8 hours?

the 8 hours is a stress test. real world usage , having the device on, browsing the web for a bit, some messaging, go to the bathroom, eat lunch, use it for an hour later, etc, like real people do, you get 20 hours. geez, how can you not get that?

it's right there. in the paragraph above your highlight. read it! it's right there!!! he said what the numbers mean he said it, read it!!!!!!!!!!

And you implied that you can get 20 hours of LTE data usage from the RAZR MAXX. I proved you WRONG. You can barely get 8 hours between the low-power WiFi and LTE.

Since it's sounding like you were born yesterday the stated durations are for the actual time used, not including the times you aren't using it. So again, you are WRONG stating that you can get 20 hours of LTE usage from the RAZR MAXX.

No, I assumed that people use their devices like normal human beings. not crazy people like you who download on 4g while keeping the screen on for 8 hours straight. frankly, I didn't think people like you exist. but I'm sorry, for people like you who use their iPad without any breaks and constantly have it downloading something every second for 8 hours straight....No you won't get 20 hours. hope apple puts that disclaimer in if they do put 4g in.

for the rest of us with, well other things to do besides stare at an iPad for 8 hours straight, yeah, 20 hours

Fuck, you're a dense one! By your ignorant count I can get 720 hours of "use" from the iPad because I can turn it on, use it for a moment, let it sit for 30 days and get back to it for one final task right at 1%. The thing you don't count standby time, you add up the usage time for a particular usage. It's seriously disturbing that someone can post on this forum and not have even a rudimentary understanding of common tech.

This statement is slightly ambiguous, but that doesn't mean it is "wrong." The wording "on LTE" could be understood as "a phone using LTE" and not "a phone that is perpetually accessing information via LTE for 20 hours."

Although the wording isn't perfect (and actually as a result of this implicitly points to a "casual" testing paradigm,) I would imagine most people would interpret this to mean "a phone with LTE that is used for 20 hours" rather than "a phone that is used to access web pages via LTE repetitively for 20 hours," since the latter requires a lot more qualification to intuit unless you've already been pointed to the article in question.

As a second point of interest still in regard to the topic I addressed above, tech blogs frequently test and/or comment on "mixed use" performance of consumer hardware, since that is almost certainly what it will be used for.

Less precise, but more applicable.

lol. whatever Mr 10 second battery life.

today's devices can use 4g and last people all day on a single charge, unlike the early devices that used it. whether you like it or not. try to twist it anyway you want. 4g on the iPad is gonna last people all day under normal use as this device proves is possible. that's the end of it. obviously you think not, but that's your loss. you can always buy a kindle if you don't like it

for the rest of us with, well other things to do besides stare at an iPad for 8 hours straight, yeah, 20 hours

When Apple declared their iPad battery life of 10 hours it meant 10 hours of non-stop watching video. Nobody care about "use their devices like normal human beings" we only wanted to know if we have to stress it to the max how long will it last.
With normal using an iPad will last a couple of days, and so did my wife's iPhone.

So Apple lists the '3G' iPad as getting 9 hours of battery life so perhaps they have an LTE chip that gets 10 hours, but you aren't getting that from the any smartphone. You guys are seriously mental for not knowing how battery life is rated. AI should have require a test before posting.
