    Default When will the new iPad come to Sprint?

    So far it's AT&T and Verizon only, which isn't surprising given Apple's push to LTE and Sprint's lack of LTE deployment to date.

    AT&T's LTE iPad will work on Canadian networks like Bell, Telus, and Rogers, but Verizon's LTE iPad is unique to that network.

    I wouldn't buy either hoping it becomes compatible with Sprint LTE at some later point. Apple might spin off a third LTE model just for Sprint.

    Since the iPad is month-to-month billing, however, and has no contracts, you could always rock an AT&T or Verizon LTE iPad for now, then sell it and buy a Sprint one when/if it becomes available.

    Either way, I'm guessing we'll see it eventually, even if not soon.

    I'm guessing there's nothing stopping them getting it for CDMA - EVDO RevA other than Sprint loading a batch of MEIDs from Apple into their "allowed devices" table on their systems.

    LTE is another story.

    I seriously dont't think it would sell well. They have terribly slow 3G and Vzn and At&t's marketed as LTE. I can picture next year Sprint having one. I would assume their LTE we be deployed in some markets by then.

    I doubt they'd get it before their LTE network gets rolled out
