Half of iPad 3s sold will sport 4G, says bank

More punters favour faster connectivtiy

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Brits may have no need for the new iPad's 4G connectivity, but Americans are going to lap up the LTE-enabled tablet, UBS has forecast.

That, the bank believes, will result in heightened demand for the 4G iPad 3 to the extent that it will account for almost half of the iPad 3s sold by Apple.

The ratio of Wi-Fi only to Wi-Fi + 3G iPad 2s was more like 60:40, said UBS senior analyst John Hodulik, by way of GigaOm.

For its part, Apple has never broken down iPad sales into those with cellular network connectivity and those without.

“With an HD screen, faster processor and higher-resolution camera, we believe this device will drive demand for faster connectivity,” Hodulik told investors.

Our benchmarking shows the iPad 3 doesn't sport a faster CPU, but he's right about the other advantages. You can read our review of the Wi-Fi only iPad 3 here. We'll be looking at the 4G model shortly. ®
