Forget the MiFi: the next generation iPad will work on both red & blue networks out of the gate according to the Wall Street Journal. It’s a no brainer that the next generation iPad is going to be thinner, more powerful, and feature a front-facing camera, but an important tidbit from the WSJ notes:
The new iPad will be available through Verizon Wireless and AT&T Inc., but not Sprint NextelCorp. or T-Mobile USA in the U.S., according to some of the people familiar with the matter
2011 shouldn’t see any more iPhones or iPads on the remaining two American carriers, so don’t expect Apple to join forces with Nascar sponsor Sprint anytime soon. The WSJ doesn’t expect the second generation iPad to have a significantly greater display, but we’re get anxious to see Apple unveil their next gen tablet already.
