Bloomberg news is reporting the much anticipated LTE technology found in some smartphones (coming to iPhone this summer?) will be seen in Apple’s next generation tablet, iPad 3. The new device is rumored to be launching some time this March.

iPad 3 will see LTE before iPhone 5 because the tablet has a bigger battery and is better able to handle the power requirements.

LTE, or Long Term Evolution, is the next step in the 4G wireless world. It’s basically an easier way to deploy network technology, offering high speeds over long distances.
