Third-generation iPad is nearly ready for China

Apple's third-generation iPad is getting closer to arriving in China, with the country's Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center providing a mandatory license for an unnamed 3G-compatible Apple-made device, which is most likely the new iPad.

But, there are still some hurdles. Apple need to reach an agreement with Proview over the ownership of the iPad trademark in China, with negotiations starting up again recently. Apple have reportedly tabled a settlement of $16 million, but is much, much less than the $400 million that Proview is holding out for.


The new iPad is destined to be a China Unicom-exclusive, who is Apple's original operator partner, and LTE will not be featured in China as no network is operational in the country.
