    Default More Clues Suggest Sprint 4G iPad Right Around The Corner


    With Apple's iPhone 5 release believed to be just weeks away, speculation has never been greater about the possible arrival of the touchscreen Apple smartphone reaching Sprint customers for the first time in the US this fall. But along with the iPhone's debut on Sprint, another popular Apple product may be on tap for Sprint: the iPad.

    According to the latest industry chatter, the Sprint-compatible iPad is, indeed, ready for roll-out. And while no formal confirmation exists to suggest that the tablet will run on Sprint’s powerful 4G WiMAX network, more than a few Sprint employees have been told that it will.

    TUAW’s Erica Sadun says Sprint Nextel sales associates are now being briefed on the looming arrival.

    The associate also suggested that Sprint will carry a 4G iPad, though launch dates and pricing were still unknown. Of course, Sprint already sells 4G access for the iPad via its external mobile 4G WiFi product.
    However, if the associate’s information is accurate, Sprint will get the iPad before it gets the iPhone 5. According to sources connected to Sprint, it remains a possibility that the iPhone 5 won't reach Sprint customers in the United States until early 2012. In the interim, the iPhone 4 may become available through Sprint as soon as the iPhone 5 arrives for both AT&T and Verizon.

    As we've been hearing for weeks, Sprint is reportedly angling to distinguish itself from its carrier competitors by offering its subscribers an unlimited data plan for the iPhone - something no longer offered by AT&T and Verizon.

    lol. All of you wanting to jump to Sprint so quickly......that is EXACTLY what they want. So when the iPhone and iPad hit their network and they get a massive influx of new customers locked into a 2-yr contract......BOOM......Sprint drops their unlimited data plan faster than a French war hero and you end up stuck with an over-crowded, bogged down Sprint network AND 2GB of data to play with a month.

    If I were you I would probably hold off to see how Sprint's network will respond to this added load. The data thing you can't really do anything about because they can decide at any time to drop it and restructure it....just like AT&T did.
