Apple iPad now available from Verizon Wireless and AT&T

PSA: The Apple iPad can now be purchased online or in stores from both Verizon Wireless and AT&T. As a quick recap, you’ll notice that pricing is the same from both carriers (16GB: $629, 32GB: $729, 64GB: $829) despite the fact that AT&T sells the iPad Wi-Fi + 3G and Verizon Wireless is only selling the iPad Wi-Fi model. This is because Verizon chose to bundle a MiFi 2200 with each iPad. And to stay competitive with AT&T’s iPad deal, Verizon will not require a contract. Instead, the carrier is offering month-to-month data packages of 1GB for $20, 3GB for $35 or 5GB for $50. AT&T’s data packages for the iPad remain unchanged — $15 for 250MB each month, $25 for 2GB, or $30 for unlimited data if you’re grandfathered in. The most important takeaway by far is still the fact that a piece of Apple hardware is now being sold by Verizon Wireless. Needless to say, it bodes well for the future.
