It was announced today that the iPad will be arriving at Verizon on October 28th.
More the 2,000 Verizon Wireless stores will offer three bundles with an iPad Wi-Fi model, along with the company's MiFi 2200 Intelligent Mobile Hotspot, a small device that provides access to Verizon's 3G network.
16GB iPad Wi-Fi and the mobile hot spot for $630
32GB Wi-Fi model and hot spot will retail for $730
Verizon will be selling the 64GB Wi-Fi iPad with the hot spot for $830.
The company will also offer all three iPad Wi-Fi models without the hot spot. Verizon didn't specify prices, but Apple sells those models for $499, $599, and $699, respectively.
Verizon's MiFi 2200 Intelligent Mobile Hotspot owners will need to pay a monthly fee for access. Verizon said it will charge $20 per month for 1GB of data, with no contract required.
Not sure that I want to carry around a MiFi with my iPad...can't I just connected it to my Verizon Droid rooted phone! Like I have been since I bought my WiFi model?
Or a retrofit?
