Lovely iPad Rumor of the Day – iPad on Sprint Before the Holidays

According to 9to5Mac, the iPad is coming to Sprint, and very soon …

Apple and Sprint have completed work on a version of the iPad for Sprint’s data network. This Sprint compatible iPad appears to be ready for public consumption and will join the family of GSM (AT&T) and Verizon capable Apple tablets before the holidays.

As if that’s not an interesting enough rumor in its own right, 9to5Mac also says this will not be a CDMA model:

The Sprint version of the iPad is completely separate from the CDMA Verizon model.  We can’t confirm that this new iPad will run on Sprint’s powerful 4G WiMAX network, but the question begs to be asked: Why would Apple build a new iPad for Sprint and not use the CDMA iPad that Verizon already carries? 

So if this report is accurate, that will have the iPad on three of the four leading US carriers, and possibly the first 4G data capable iPad.

Any Sprint customers here waiting on a Sprint iPad?
