    Actually a USAToday article states that Verizon will sell only the wifi model, not the 3G. So that would make sense why they would bundle it with their own mifi 3G solution at the same price.

    Don't discount the usefulness of the GPS in the 3G iPad - it's a great feature.

    You don't like the iPad because you don't have one!

    Also they would need a whole different hardware layout for a 3G compatible CDMA version of the ipad, so why the hell would they sell a 3g version that would not work right? Or am i missing something here? F U verizon!

    I love how the post says this should sell a lot of ipads given that verizons 3G speeds are terribad and for 5 bucks less than AT&T you get half the FAA allotment and also you have to carry around a puck for your 3G data connection haha I say nay!

    ya, I have been doing this since I got my iPad WiFi. The only problem is that you do not get GPS. so it defeats the purpose of using it as a map on car trips.

    I wish they released the iPad WiFi with a real GPS. I feel a bit cheated since that was not advertised correctly. They made it look like that you still have GPS with the WiFi iPad.

    Also, if you tether your iPad to your iPhone, it will not use location.

    that is my only beef!

    A strategic partnership between Apple and Verizon, never thought we'd see the day. That's a great deal on data compared to the BS tiered data that AT&T offers..
    $20 for 1GB at Verizon or $25 for 2GB at ATT. How can you argue that ATT's plan is strictly worse?

    I have tried Verizon and although I love the Mifi, their data speeds are lacking. They tout the largest 3G network in the U.S., but AT&T's speeds spank Verizon. Granted, AT&T's network is smaller.
