While Cook didn't mention Sprint on Wednesday, a leaked screenshot of Best Buy's internal inventory system shows that a variant of the third-generation Apple tablet for Sprint is going to be on hand at the big box retailer. When it will be offered by Best Buy is unknown at this point, but this is certainly good news for Sprint customers who have been looking on at their Verizon and AT&T neighbors with those green, envious eyes. Of course, nothing prevents Sprint customers from buying the Wi-Fi only variant, but if you want to be totally mobile with your new tablet, well, you are going to want LTE.
So Sprint customers, you can apparently relax, knowing that once Dan Hesse has figured out how to replace the LTE service that he was counting on LightSquared for, the new Apple iPad should be already collecting dust in Best Buy's warehouse just waiting to be shipped right to you.
