Apple lifts lid on its 4G iPad

Apple Inc yesterday unveiled a faster 4G-equipped iPAD starting at $629, hoping the latest version of its tablet can safeguard its dominance over rivals ranging from Inc to Samsung Electronics Co Ltd.


Chief Executive Tim Cook, presiding over his second major product launch after debuting with 2011′s voice-enabled iPhone 4S, introduced the highly anticipated third iteration of the tablet, which is available for pre-orders from yesterday and will hit store shelves March 16.

The high-end model of Apple’s latest iPad will be capable of operating on a high-speed 4G “LTE,” or Long-Term Evolution, network. At speeds roughly 10 times faster than current 3G technology, that may help banish the sometimes shaky video quality of older devices.-REUTERS
