Verizon to Sell iPads

The move may or may not lend some substance to the rumors that Verizon will finally get an Android-fighting CDMA iPhone

At a guess one might think that Apple's thinking saturation, especially ahead of the coming competition because Verizon Wireless, which doesn't sell iPhones - though everybody seems to wish it did because its network is supposed to be better than AT&T's - is going to start selling a version of the iPad at 2,000 locations come October 28.

The move may or may not lend some substance to the rumors that Verizon will finally get an Android-fighting CDMA iPhone compatible with its network next year.

Anyway, it's going to be selling the less popular (more inventory-prone?) Wi-Fi iPad with its own personal MiFi 2200 mobile hot spot device. That means that users should be able to connect to the Internet if they're anywhere near a 3G service.

The bundles will run $630 for a 16GB iPad, $730 for a 32GB one and $830 for 64GB one with a $20-a-month connection fee for up to 1GB of data. Verizon will sell the 3G models naked.

Meanwhile, AT&T, which has had a carrier exclusive on the thing, will also start selling the 3G iPad at its stores with a 250MB access plan for $15 a month or 2GB for $25 before Halloween, a month ahead of the official start of the Christmas rush.
