Yesterday, Apple introduced the new iPad mini and the fourth-generation iPad, which is now called the iPad with Retina display to differentiate it from the other two iPad offerings. During the announcement, Apple said that more carriers around the world would be carrying the new iPads – including Sprint, which was a glaring omission from the original LTE providers for the third-generation iPad.

Sprint sent out a press release yesterday to confirm the news, saying that it ”will offer these new iPads with a range of attractive data plans that will allow customers to connect to its 4G LTE network.”

Since the two new iPads are still yet-to-be-released, Sprint will start offering them when they go on sale. Preorders will start this Friday, October 26, and deliveries will begin on November 2.

Are you excited that Sprint will be offering LTE iPad models, in addition to Verizon and AT&T? And if so, will you be choosing Sprint over the others – or is its network problems telling you to choose one of its competitors?
