The WSJ Blogs are throwing fuel on the fire on the rumors of a second iPad launch this year, but adding an LTE 4G twist.

“While most vendors appear fixated on matching the specs and features of iPad2, our checks suggest Apple will release iPad3 in time for the holiday season, sporting a better display and LTE capabilities.”

Daring Fireball first of thought out loud about the possibility of an updated iPad 2 or full on iPad 3 coming this year, and TiPb has heard a very similar story. Will it come to pass? Who knows. Apple doesn't pre-announce so they can make up their minds any time.

But it definitely sounds like the possibility is on the table. What do you think, could iPad go LTE before iPhone? And would Apple do it with anything less than the same 10 hour battery life?
