According to Japanese outlet Nikkei Business, Apple CEO Tim Cook has intimated to Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo that both the iPhone 5 and iPad 3 will come equipped with 4G LTE.

The iPad 3 will be the first to hit stores, with a Japanese release tentatively slated for the summer and a fall release for the iPhone 5. American drop dates should precede both by several weeks.

Here’s hoping that with Apple last to the 4G race, the Cupertino company has figured out how to prevent compromising battery life in the process.
