One of the most anticipated features of todays iPad was the 4G LTE technology. Along with the new iPad came the iOS 5.1 software update, and users installing it already found some peculiarities.

For those of you with an iPhone 4S, you can download iOS 5.1 to get 4G LTE on your phone right now— sort of. The software adds the capability to display a 4G logo, right where the 3G logo would normally go. Note that this won’t improve your speeds, but is simply branding the current tech as 4G, even though it was 3G just yesterday.

Note that currently AT&T is the only carrier displaying this logo, which doesn’t show up in other firmwares.
