LTE iPad mini and iPad 4 arrive on AT&T, Sprint and Verizon
After we first reported that the two Apple tablets have launched on Sprint earlier today, now Verizon and AT&T have also stocked up on the iOS gadgets.
While Verizon is offering orders online (in scarce quantity), AT&T has the two tablets both in its online and brick-and-mortar stores. Shipping dates vary from a couple of days to two weeks depending on the carrier and the model that you want to order.
Prices also vary depending on how you buy the device. If you pick the option to pay on a month-to-month basis for say the LTE iPad mini, prices start from $459, while AT&T offers 2-year contracts with a subsidy bringing down the starting price to $359.99.

The A6X chipset isn't making its way to the iP mini. Only the full-size Pad gets that love.

Maybe next years will feature it, or an A7

Hey guys.. i prefer android but.. I'm here to make peace with all u apple fans.
Apple is a good company i must say.... Actually, i Prefer the quality of apps in apps store in iOS to the play store in android........ Kudos for quality to apple.
Lets end this fight between apple and android fans okay?
I'm not being sarcastic here but lets accept each others' opinion in a polite manner alright? :)

Ok let's end it. I wish other android fans were like you.

Thanks... Thats because i used an android smartphone and an iPod... Apple is really great in controlling quality honestly.
Lets spread this peace message to other android users, ok? :) I really wanna end the war between hating android and iOS.... I was like them... immature... hating apple... I thought through already. every company has their weakness and strengths.

U get nothing, but respect and agreement from me bro. I wish it could b that way, it's so pointless anyway cuz not one anti apple/google comment is going to change anyone's mind.

Hi Kronic...Im a SONY fan...Im not fond of Apple....(i dont like samsung..but i like android)
Im not being rude or anything...
Ipad 3 with already capable of handling all things. So do u wanna upgrade it to Ipad4 for the new chip and a lightning adaptor...u have to buy a 30 dollar adaptor also(or all new accessories)..
There is also a rumor of ipad mini with retina display....
Just think about it...

I have dumped my PC and I never wanna back to any PC like devices (even a Mac) I use my iPad for everything and so a faster 9.7 ipad would be great for me and the chip inside- its no ordinary dual core chip- it's uses a custom CPU design to achieve quad core processor performance. Also I play a lot of graphic intense games so a 2X boost in graphics would be awesome (keep in mind that the iPad 3 already had a very powerful graphics processing unit). In fact this newer iPad blows nexus 10 out of the water in performance (except screen res). Some reviewers have even said that the nexus 10 display is of lower quality compared to apples ipad display.

Hope you enjoy ur iPad 3 :) Nexus 10 is fast and good.. but i have to admit apple products are faster and due to well done up coding by apple...
Both android and apple devices are good in their own ways :)

Who said nexus 10 is a bad tablet? It's awesome! And the fact that it is a nexus makes me wanna buy it. But I am used to ipad and I have owned an android tablet. Ipad is my preference.

I know right.. Look at all the dislikes our peaceful messages and opinion changing generates! These fans need to grow up and be open to other products too! END THIS WAR BETWEEN IPHONE AND ANDROID!

Raymond_htc has my respect. Scroll thru and read his posts to see what I mean.
24. Raymond_htc (Posts: 430; Member since: 06 Apr 2012)
And you have my respect too. :)
It suddenly occured to me that if only apple fans and android fans have peace, there will be no more rediculous comments in this web page, as well as massive amounts of biased likes and dislikes in every comments.
Lets spread this peace to other users of this site? :)

If you look at my posts from the old days they are immature and i have to admit it. We should stop calling each other fandroids, iFans, iSheeeeaaps.
