Today is October 28th. That means that the iPad is coming to Verizon stores. They've come to an interesting agreement with Apple over this one, however. With the Verizon, you can't buy an iPad 3G; you have to purchase the wifi model, and to get "anywhere" connectivity you purchase the iPad bundled with a MiFi portable hotspot. The iPads can also be purchased at their regular price without the MiFi bundle.
For those interested here are the pricing plans with the portable hotspots:
16GB – $629
32GB – $729
64GB – $829
And the monthly data plans (no contract needed):
1GB – $20
3GB – $35
5GB – $50
In other news, AT&T will also be carrying the device. This one will be the wifi+3G model (16GB [$629], 32GB [$729] and 64GB [$829]) with the standard data plans of $14.99 for 250Mb and $25 for 2GB of data.
