This news is just too big to ignore. Verizon has gone to the dark side. Verizon has an Apple iPad pre-order page up on the VerizonWireless.com website now allowing you to order an Apple iPad with Verizon network support by bundling it with the MiFi. The date of availability? October 28th.
This is big. I don't think there can be any doubt about the Apple iPhone coming to Verizon anymore. So now we are faced with the prospect of Big Red carrying the two most recently dominant cellphone platforms. Battles like this are usually the best thing for the consumer as it increases competition from everyone involved and generally results in lower prices.
Get ready for a major rumble, you'll soon be able to compare "Apples to Apples" with the Verizon Apple iPad.
