    Apple has launched TD-LTE capable models of the iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display in China, adding to existing iPad models that support other cellular networks in China. The new models are almost certainly the then-unreleased devices that became supported with iOS 7.1 earlier this month.

    China Mobile began selling the iPhone 5s and 5c on its new 4G/TD-LTE network back in January, with these iPads capable of working on the same higher speed network.

    I'm glad I don't live in China where I would have to wait awhile for products to come to my area.

    The great firewall of china will be even more easily accessible now!

    Jokes aside, with my U.S. iPad can't I just visit china and pop in one of their sims for service abroad?

    Yes you can, all cellular models of iPads is compatible with China Unicom, and the last two generations (iPad 4/Air/Mini/Mini with Retina) support both China Unicom and China Telecom.

    The new models mentioned in original article are for China Mobile only, which runs *cough* so called "homebrew" *cough* 3G technology of China.

    On the other hand, it could be a PITA for a traveler to buy Pay-as-you-go data SIMs in China...
