It might not be a Verizon iPhone, but it’s the closest we’ve come to that so far. We’re talking about the announcement that Apple’s iPad will be arriving at Verizon and AT&T stores from Thursday Oct 28. Verizon will only be offering Wi-Fi versions, but will be bundling that iPad with a Verizon MiFi 2200 Intelligent Mobile Hotspot, addressing the issue of the lack of built-in 3G. The carrier is offering monthly access plans for iPad customers for up to 1GB of data for just $20 a month. Aside from the bundles, Verizon is also offering all three iPad Wi-Fi models on a stand-alone basis. AT&T will be offering all three Wi-Fi + 3G iPad models, with iPad data plans starting at just $14.99 and access to AT&T Wi-Fi Hot Spots around the country at no extra cost. Does the launch of Apple’s iPad on Verizon hint that there might actually be some truth in the recent CDMA iPhone rumors?
