    4G = Fourth Generation? 

  2. Sean Smith says:

     Considering LTE has been settled on as the “true” 4G for awhile now, it’s probably what it means by 4G. It can’t refer to the generation of iPad because this is only the third generation.

    there’s only been two generations of iPads so far so…this next one would have to be the 3rd…

    OK now I’ve made myself look like a right numpty. My massive bad guys. Sorry!

    Which 4G frequencies? I hope 850 en 2600 MHz will be supported so it will work in Europe.

    You’re probably right, but nothing is confirmed until we hear it from Apple.

  8. Mike Rathjen says:

    For the same reason the second iPhone was called iPhone 3G. It’s about the wireless technology generation, not the device.

    LTE is widely regarded as 4th generation wireless data technology. iPad 1 and 2 are both 3G.

    It’s not an Apple thing, the whole industry does this.

    Hear that? that’s the sound of naysayers around the globe getting slapped across the face
