Just as we thought, Apple has officially launched the fourth-generation and iPad mini with cellular connectivity today. AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint are all offering the devices with a variety of data plans. Don’t wait too long, though. Each store only has a limited supply.
AT&T is offering a $100 discount on iPads and iPad minis for those willing to sign up with a two-year contract. Verizon and Sprint do not offer any other data service but month-to-month.
Normally, superstores like Target and Best Buy are part of the launch of new iPad models. However, at this time, both companies are showing the 4G LTE models of the iPad mini and fourth-generation iPad are not yet available on line or in stores. We still don’t have official word about availability of fourth generation iPad and iPad mini Wi-Fi + 4G LTE models at Apple Retail store. Currently, you can order the tablet online with a shipping estimate of one to two weeks.
As the day goes by, it is likely that more stores will be announcing that the cellular models are on sale.
