Reuters recently published an article stating that a source close to Apple has confirmed that the iPad 3 or HD will be an LTE device.
"The newest iPad will be capable of operating on a high-speed 4G 'LTE,' or Long-Term Evolution network, according to a source familiar with the product," wrote Reuters. "At speeds roughly 10 times faster than current 3G technology, that may go a long way toward banishing the sometimes shaky video quality of older devices."
Reuters also stated that Apple hopes that customers will want to pay extra for this new LTE iPad due to its high video quality.
iMore also claims that this same source who revealed the iPad 3 unveiling date for March 7 also said that the tablet would be compatible with LTE. This has been an ongoing rumor since the fall of last year when supply chains began leaking information on the device.
The Wall Street Journal reported last month that an LTE-equipped next-generation iPad would be released by Apple through Verizon and AT&T.
The iPad 3 will reportedly be called the iPad HD by Apple when it is unveiled tomorrow, according to both CNET and VentureBeat.
"The HD suffix is a nod to the new iPad's biggest upgrade: the high definition display," wrote tech site 9to5Mac.
The earliest reports of this other name came last year when The Verge first reported that the third generation iPad would in fact be called the iPad HD.
"The Verge's report called for some new professional software for the iPad HD," continue 9to5Mac. "And also said the device would be marketed as a new high-end iPad, and the iPad 2 would continue to sell."
The device is set to debut tomorrow at a media event hosted by Apple. This means that the tablets official launch should take place sometime next week with pre-orders beginning this weekend.
