Imagine iPads with multimode CDMA-GSM chips. Clearly, what would be thought of as the holy grail of tablet computing as it would mean the mobile wireless option would be functional anywhere the user happens to be, regardless of mobile technology at play in the region where someone wanted to use the iPad.
There is a lot of logic in this line of thought. And assuming Apple can pull it off, it’s a big win not just for multiple countries, but likely for us here in the States as well. Further expectations for these new iPads include a front facing camera and a unibody construction.
It’s speculated that the CDMA-GSM iPad is not merely a stab at gaining more traction in the international market, but also locking themselves in deeper here within our neck of the woods as well.
