Best Buy database shows Sprint flavored Apple iPad

0. phoneArena 09 Mar 2012, 18:06 posted on

A leaked picture of Best Buy's internal inventory system reveals a Sprint flavored Apple iPad just waiting for the nation's third largest carrier to flip the switch on its LTE network; for the sake of Sprint and its customers, hopefully the apparent LightSquared failure won't be too messy for the carrier...

Wouldn't be surprised if they were 3G models.

I'd be. Since Samsung released a phone using Sprint's LTE, I am guessing Apple and everyone else will release their products with an LTE antenna as well.

Mmmmm Sprint has powered the Ipad for quite some time. But Sprint will not offer the Ipad on a 2 year contract.

Nobody offers the iPad on a 2-year contract, Apple doesn't let them. Sprint hasn't "powered" the iPad at all. Sprint sells the wifi-enabled iPad paired with a mobile hotspot if you want internet connectivity. Good for them if they are getting a 3G/4G version, but it probably won't launch until they actually have LTE, Apple doesn't like Wi-Max

All right lets go your way. who says that "Apple doesnt let them"??? Apple will let them but what will be the cost of the contract ???. Mmmmmm let me think. Yes and the answer will be "Skyrocket". Thats why nobody offer them. Plus it makes more business sense to sell them the way they had since Apple could suck all that money.
