A new report out from Engadget indicates that Verizon is going to try and capitalize on the iPad Launch and sell some data contracts.
Turns out Big Red is tipping off its staffers on how it can encourage customers to go with the WiFi-only version of the iPad and pair it up with a device like the MiFi rather than shelling out $130 more for integrated AT&T 3G and waiting a few extra weeks. As usual, Verizon's keen on playing up the anti-AT&T sentiment it's cultivated in its recent ad campaign by openly calling its biggest competitor's 3G network "overloaded," but we see one big hangup: 5GB of data on a Verizon MiFi is going to run you $60 a month, twice as much as AT&T will be charging for its dedicated, unlimited iPad plan.

Recently Slashat.se reportedly sent an email to Mr. Jobs asking one simple question. "Will the wifi-only version somehow support tethering through my iPhone?" Supposedly Steve Jobs actually replied from his iPhone with "No".

For those that aren't aware what tethering is, it's the ability to share your Internet/data connection from your phone to other devices. In a way, it turns your mobile phone into a portable Internet router.

While the iPhone was suppose to support tethering with the release of the iPhone 3GS version last summer, AT&T still doesn't offer this feature. However, if you have an Android Phone you'll be in luck and should be able to pull this stunt off!
