So, they'll carry the pad, but they won't be able to sell you 3G service on it, lol... They're bundling a MiFi. Deal is if you already have a mifi you can use it, if you don;t, they'll sell you one for the price difference between the WiFi and 3G versions of the ipad. Then, you pay $20 for 1GB per month no-contract, or sign a commitment and pay a ridiculous sum to get more. AT&T offers a $15 plan for 250MB and 2GB for only $5 more than Verizon, requires no secondary device, and neither have a contract. Also, if you have an AT&T plan at all, you get access to all AT&Ts hotspots. No go on Verizon.
oh, and Verizon is selling the pad at $1 higher than MSRP.
So, if you are on Verizon and already have a MiFi, you can pay Verizon a dollar extra than retail and use it as you otherwise would, or you can pay higher than AT&T prices and have to carry a MiFi if you want 3G on the go (though you would get the benefit of using that with your PC too, 1GB is a very small plan and not much use, especially if the iPad is already getting your e-mail and can sync and send documents without the PC needing it's own 3G connection). Or, you could just go buy one from any other retailer and simply use the iPad to sign up for an AT&T month-by-month account, since that has NO EFFECT on the fact your phone might be on Verizon... Who the hell would pay more for less just to use Verizon's slower 3G system? (oh, yea, the iPad is HSDPA compliant, so if you have that in your area from AT&T, which everyone will inside 6-9 months and a lot of us already do, then the $5 more for double the data AT&T offer is also 4x as fast... Jailbreak the pad and use it to connect your PC...
This is a total Verizon fail. They had an opportunity to show Apple they could make some interest, but in the end, their evil pricing and refusal to budge on policy bites its customers. If I was still on Verizon, I;d go to AT&T to buy this on nothing more than Verizon priced it up a buck, ad had the nerve to not offer the same data plan to existing MiFi people.
