Apple iPhone 5 and iPad 3 to host 4G compatibility?

With iPad 3 and iPhone 5 rumours repeatedly doing the rounds, new reports from Japan have suggested Apple is to add 4G connectivity to future iDevices

 

Apple finally looks set to embrace 4G LTE networks with new reports emanating from Japan suggesting the Cupertino based company will make the long rumoured iPhone 5 and iPad 3 compatible with the emerging high speed networks.

With key rivals HTC, Samsung and Motorola having already jumped on the rapidly growing 4G bandwagon, Apple looks set to become a latecomer to the high speed party with Japan's reputable Nikkei Business publication suggesting the iPod and Mac manufacturer will introduce 4G support to new devices in 2012.

Claiming that newly instated Apple CEO Tim Cook has already met with Japanese network provider NTT DoCoMo the Nikkei reports a 4G iPad will hit the nation in summer 2012 with the next-generation iPhone to follow in the autumn.

Whilst any 4G compatible Apple devices are expected to be rolled out across the US, the UK's fledgling 4G network is not expected to be ready for a 2012 arrival with trials currently being conducted in Cornwall and London.

Apple iPad 3 Rumours

Expected to be the next major product announcement from Apple the much rumoured iPad is tipped to land sporting a 9.7-inch Retina display with improvements to be made to both the device's forward-facing and rear mounted cameras. An Apple iPad 3 release date is expected around March or April of 2012.

Would the arrival of a 4G iPad and iPhone paired with the UK's lack of 4G connectivity make you feel cheated as a consumer? Let us know via the comments box below.
