Verizon Wireless-compatible Apple iPad in the works

Verizon Wireless will soon sell a new version of the Apple iPad compatible with its cellular networks, Bloomberg reports. The news comes as another blow to AT&T on Tuesday, following Verizon’s announcement that it would begin selling Apple’s iPhone 4 next month. In an interview with Bloomberg, Verizon Communications Chief Financial Officer Francis Shammo said that an upcoming iPad model would include an embedded chip that will allow it to connect to Verizon Wireless’ data networks. Shammo did not specify if the forthcoming iPad would work on Verizon’s 3G data network or its new 4G LTE network, but previous rumors suggest that the next-generation iPad will include a CDMA radio. Verizon Wireless began selling the Wi-Fi-only iPad this past October, offering the popular iOS tablet bundled with a Verizon MiFi mobile hotspot.
