Following last month's launch of the iPad mini and 4th-generation iPad in China, Apple has announced that cellular data-enabled versions of both products will be coming to the world's largest mobile market this week. Apple will sell the tablets online and in stores from Friday, and you'll also be able to find them at select resellers.

There's no information yet on whether carriers will be selling the iPads directly, but we'd expect them to work on 3G at best across the nation — number 1 operator China Mobile's nascent TD-LTE network is incompatible with Apple products currently on sale. We've reached out to Apple for further details and will let you know if we hear anything back.
