Wow. Verizon is carrying the iPad with a Mifi month to month plan without obligation for $20 for 1 GB $50/month for 5GB). Those prices below ($629/$729/$829) match the 3G iPad version that works with AT&T but instead you get the Mifi unit for $129 with a Wifi iPad. Verizon will also sell them standalone.
The upside? You can use four other devices at the same time. The big bummer on this? No GPS in Wifi iPads and Mifi units only hold a charge for 4 hours of data.
Apple also announced AT&T would be carrying iPads in their stores.
One excuse that won’t work for parents this Christmas: “Honey we couldn’t find an iPad in any stores”.
