LTE Versions of Fourth-Gen iPad & iPad Mini to Go on Sale from November 22 & 26 Respectively?
Update (Nov 29, 2012): Nubox just sent out a press release that the Apple iPad mini (Wi-Fi + Cellular) will be available at all 11 Nubox stores tomorrow at 11am.
Update (Nov 28, 2012): The 4G version of the iPad Mini will go on sale at all EpiCentre outlets this Friday, November 30.
Last Friday, the Wi-Fi + Cellular versions of the Apple iPad Mini and fourth-generation iPad started selling in the Apple Stores and the stores of the top three wireless network operators in the United States. U.S. customers who have pre-ordered these LTE-capable models also started receiving their shipments around the same time. On the same day, we noticed some updates on the Singapore Apple Store that seem to suggest that these LTE models are ready to go on sale in local stores very soon.
If you were to pre-order the LTE version of the fourth-generation iPad now on the Apple Store, you’ll find that it ships in five business days. If you’ve pre-ordered earlier, your order may now be reflecting a November 22 to 26 delivery.
Also, if you were to pre-order the LTE version of the iPad Mini, instead of a late November shipment, Apple now states that it ships in two weeks. Those who pre-ordered on October 26 are now reporting a November 26 to December 3 delivery.
Do these mean that telcos would start selling the LTE versions of the new iPads as early as this Thursday? Watch this space, we will let you know once we’ve further news. In the meanwhile, why not read our review of the iPad Mini (Wi-Fi) or participate in the discussion in this thread in our iPad sub-forum.
