According to Silicon Alley Insider, those with dreams of a Verizon iPad need not despair after last week’s announcement that the iPad would be carried by AT&T in the US.  They tell us that their Verizon sources say that a deal is still forthcoming. 

Apple is working with Verizon on a version of its iPad tablet, despite Apple only announcing an AT&T partnership, according to Fox News Channel’s Clayton Morris, who just spoke with a Verizon source.

Clayton Morris wasn’t particulary acurate in his predictions for the iPad event.

“The tablet will be supported by multiple [mobile] carriers,” said Brian Marshall of Broadpoint AmTech, citing unnamed sources he said were close to the situation. “Verizon and others,” he continued. “Definitely Verizon. I’ve been told that’s a certainty.”

TheStreet.com’s Scott Moritz wrote, “This discrete little fact would confirm that Apple has chosen Verizon as its telco partner, says Northeast Securities analyst Ashok Kumar.”

All we need now is a joint press release from Steve Jobs and Ivan Seidenberg.
