Apple continues to expand the iPad making it available in more retail stores and today announces it will be available through Verizon Wireless October 28th. Three bundles will be offered combining the iPad Wi-Fi model with a VZW's MiFi mobile hotspot. The iPad 16GB + MiFi bundle will sell for $629.99, the iPad 32GB + Mifi bundle will sell for $729.99, and the iPad 64GB and MiFi bundle will sell for $829.99. The data plan will be a monthly fee of $20.00 a month for up to 1GB of data.
“This is the perfect pairing for holiday travels,” said John Stratton, chief operating officer for Verizon Wireless. “iPad together with the nation’s largest and most reliable 3G data network allows customers to easily connect on the go wherever they are.”
“We’re thrilled to be working with Verizon Wireless to get iPad into the hands of even more customers this holiday season,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s COO. “iPad allows users to connect with their apps and content in a more intimate, intuitive and fun way than ever before, and together with Verizon Wireless we’re offering an easy way to stay connected wherever you go.”
Any thoughts that Apple and VWZ just might be working on an iPad 4G (LTE) version launching next year as the iPad 2?
