Verizon to Sell Apple iPads

Following the latest reports that the iPhone will finally be making it to the Verizon network comes news that Apple will begin selling the iPad at Verizon Wireless stores in a few short weeks, marking the first integration of the two competing companies. The iPad, which has already sold approximately 8 million units, will not run on the usual 3G network familiar to Apple users. Instead, Verizon will incorporate a “MiFi” card, which will allow users to create portable WiFi hubs. Experts say it's a strategic move on Apple’s part to bring the tablet device to Verizon, the U.S.’ largest wireless carrier, before companies such as Samsung and Motorola release their tablet devices.
