iPad Mini buyers waiting for the LTE version of the tablet will have their chance to buy a device in Sprint carrier stores beginning Friday. Sprint also will start carrying the fourth-generation iPad.
The LTE iPad Mini will be available in black and white versions, but will cost significantly more than its Wi-Fi-only sibling. The 16GB will sell for $459.99, the 32GB for $559.99, and the 64GB for $659.99.
Though Apple began taking orders for the LTE iPad Mini on November 2, it advised buyers that their devices would ship and appear in stores in two weeks. This latest announcement hits that target even if this week some early order customers received notices that their devices could arrive by Friday.
