China now selling TD-LTE compatible iPad Air, iPad mini
Apple has <a href="">revealed</a> that China Mobile and its other Chinese telecom partners -- along with its own stores and resellers -- are carrying a special model of the <a href="">iPad Air</a> and <a href="">iPad mini with Retina display</a> that is specific to the Chinese market, and compatible with the country's proprietary TD-SCDMA wireless standard, meaning new iPad buyers can now use the tablets on China's limited TD-LTE cellular network, which is mostly limited to the biggest cities. The Chinese iPads are separate models from the ones sold outside China.<br /><br /><div align='center'><img class='mobile-img' src='' width='500' height='180' alt='' border='0' pagespeed_url_hash="1850788079"/></div><br />
<br />
<a href="" rel='nofollow'>Previously-unknown iPad models</a> were spotted in the beta code for iOS 7.1, and the new Chinese-specific models are the likely explanation for the discovery. The Chinese iPad models are also compatible with GSM and UTMS, but may not offer support for EDGE, HSPA+ or DC-HSDPA as the non-Chinese models do.<br />
<br />
They are otherwise identical to the worldwide models, and are priced starting at 4,488RMB (US $722) for the iPad Air with WLAN+Cellular, and starting at 3,788RMB ($609) for the iPad mini with Retina display WLAN+Cellular, both in the 16GB capacity. Each larger capacity is around $113 more expensive than the previous iteration.<br />
