AT&T unveiled their Modio LTE Case for iPad Mini at CES earlier this year, and now the carrier has announced that the case, which enables Wi-Fi only iPad mini tablets to connect to AT&T’s LTE network, will be available as of March 20.
“The AT&T Modio LTE case is both convenient and a great value for our customers. The case’s durability also makes it a natural choice for iPad mini with Wi-Fi users. Connect your iPad mini with Wi-Fi to AT&T’s 4G LTE network – the nation’s strongest LTE signal – and protect it at the same time.” – Jeff Bradley, senior vice president, Device Marketing and Developer Services, AT&T Mobility.
The Modio will be available for only the iPad Mini, iPad Mini 2, and iPad Mini 3 on March 20, AT&T says a launch for an iPad Air compatible model is planned for later in the year.
The Modio boasts 4G LTE connectivity, as well as a 4,600mAh battery that’ll give users “up to 16 hours of continuous use” and a micro SD slot that supports up to 32GB of storage.
The case requires the AT&T Modio data app, in order to monitor data usage and connect to various data plans.
The Modio will be available March 20 for $49.99 with a two year data service agreement.
