Over the weekend, the hacking group LulzSec announced that after 50 days of hacking targets such as Sony and the U.S. government, it was stopping its operations. As a parting gift, the group leaked a number of internal AT&T documents, including the above image that suggests AT&T will test a 4G LTE version of its iPad between November and December of this year. That’s in line with earlier suggestions from research firm CLSA, which said earlier this month that Apple would launch a new 4G LTE capable iPad in time for the holidays — though it certainly wouldn’t leave much margin for error if the tests don’t go according to plan. Other rumors suggest the iPad 3 won’t launch until sometime in 2012, and the timing dictated by this document would make that scenario much more likely.
