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.

Wow... thats a long way to get 3G access when you can just have it with AT&T... On this front, Verizon is grasping at straws ;)

Is anyone else offering a data plan for the iPad or will we be stuck with AT&T. I would like to see a 4G network!
