Sprint does not get new iPad

Sprint does not get new iPad Sprint has confirmed today that it will not be getting a version of Apple's new LTE-supportive iPad.
Apple announced the device at an event yesterday, also confirming that Verizon and AT&T would be receiving models that work on their respective 4G networks. The tablet goes on sale next week.

The move does make sense since Sprint has not even launched its LTE network yet, but the company is planning to do so in June in 10 major cities. Verizon on the other hand has a network that covers 200 million people in the U.S. and AT&T's relatively new network covers 74 million.

It is unclear whether Apple will release a model for Sprint after their network is up and running, however, which is a possibility. The carrier has announced 15 LTE devices for 2012, so far.

Says the carrier: "At this time, Sprint is not a carrier for Apple's iPad products. We have nothing to announce at this time."
