Apple’s next-generation phone and tablet will offer super fast 4G broadband connectivity, the incorrigible coves who make up hacking outfit LulzSec have claimed.
The loose affiliation of internet ideologues hung up its rooting boots this weekend, ending a short but stellar hacking campaign lasting 50 days that included games giant Sony, Nintendo and even the US Senate.
But before LulzSec hit it and quit, the group leaked a document from US carrier AT&T purportedly outlining its plans for next-gen 4G network provision.
Intriguingly, the doc makes prominent mention of the iPhone and the iPad, prompting tech watchers to speculate that 4G support will be present and correct in next-generation Apple kit.
The leak is sure to add weight to unconfirmed rumours that the Cupertino based company’s decision to delay the launch of the iPhone 5 was to allow extra time to equip with it the latest 4G chip.
Rival US carrier Verizon had been widely expected to bring the first 4G capable iPhone to market this year when it finally launched the handset on its network. However, the hopes of smartfans everywhere were dashed when Verizon opted for the common or garden 3G model.
