With more than 100 million iPads sold over the last two and a half years, Apple isn't about to slow down, today announcing the new fourth-generation iPad with expanded support for 4G LTE around the world.
Apple Senior VP of Worldwide Product Marketing Phil Schiller retook the stage after introducing the new Mac lineup to detail the company's new fourth-generation iPad, already eclipsing the new iPad introduced earlier this year.
Featuring the same great 9.7-inch Retina Display, the new fourth-generation iPad offers an A6X processor that promises twice the CPU and graphic performance as the previous model -- all while retaining the tablet's legendary 10 hours of battery life in the same thin, light design.
Also new to the fourth-generation iPad is a front-facing FaceTime HD camera for 720p HD video chatting, twice the Wi-Fi performance and support for 4G LTE carriers all around the world.
The new fourth-generation iPad will be available starting Friday, November 2 starting at $499 for the 16GB Wi-Fi only model, available in either black or white. Cellular-equipped models start at $629 for the 16GB model, and Sprint is being added to the carrier lineup in addition to AT&T and Verizon Wireless.
Like the iPad mini, preorders for the fourth-generation iPad will start this Friday, October 26 on Apple's online store. The company also announced the existing iPad 2 will stay in the lineup, priced at $399 for 16GB Wi-Fi only or $529 for 16GB Wi-Fi + Cellular.
