      I VERY much hope that this happens. Verizon has the best network and this would be the perfect start of a relationship between Apple and Verizon.

      Also, still waiting on the Nexus One Verizon version!

      Beautiful.:) Now ill just wait for this one to be released. Will everything else still be the same though? Like the no multi tasking, no camera, etc?

      Until someone offers significant competition I think Apple will keep this bad boy locked down pretty hard. Now, if something comes along and seriously starts stealing sales from the iPad/iPhone, they will be more apt to open it.

      According to this article, Apple lost almost 2 percent market share last quarter, I'm sure they are aware a one carrier solution in the U.S. is not in their best interest.

      I'm sure with the launch of the Motorola Droid from Verizon, it had a huge impact on iPhone sales. I think Apple underestimated the potential of Android Phones. Once the Nexus One is released in a few months on Verizon, I think that will have another impact.

      Competition is good, most of the time... depends on your side of the fence

      I think they would be smart to implement Verizon support into another iPad version. Even other carrier support would be a new welcome to the Apple community.

      It will certainly cut down on "Jail Breaking / Unlocking", but as long as it can be done, it will be done with or without support from many other carriers for data. Even with the iPad being unlocked out of box, there is still going to be many attempting to make use of their already existing 2yr contract AT&T Sims by sizing it down to use with the iPad and adapt it up for normal use in the iPhone. :ipad-case:

      Too bad because Verizon is expensive and not available internationally.
