People are always talking about the when Verizon will get Apple’s iPhone. But we have a little different but a great news as Verizon will start selling Apple’s iPad from October 28. AT&T’s retail stores will also start selling iPad from the same date which is another great news.
Only the Wi-Fi version of the iPad will be available from Verizon as Apple does not offer any 3G models to support CDMA till now.
Apple iPad with a MiFi 2200 Intelligent Mobile Hotspot will be available from Verizon at a price:
- iPad Wi-Fi 16GB + MiFi = $629.99
- iPad Wi-Fi 32GB + MiFi = $729.99
- iPad Wi-Fi 64GB + MiFi = $829.99
“We’re thrilled to be working with Verizon Wireless to get iPad into the hands of even more customers this holiday season,” declared Tim Cook, Apple’s COO.

On the other hand AT&T will be offering iPads both Wi-Fi and 3G models from the same date that is October 28. It will be helpful for AT&T to sell their 3G data plans along with the iPad through their 2,200 retail stores in the US.
“We can’t wait to showcase the amazing features of iPad Wi-Fi + 3G in our stores across the country just in time for the holidays,” said Glenn Lurie, AT&T President of Emerging Devices, Resale and Partnerships, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets. “With our breakthrough iPad data plans starting at just $14.99 and access to AT&T Wi-Fi Hot Spots around the country at no extra cost, our customers will have the best of both worlds.”
“We look forward to expanding the reach of iPad, allowing even more customers to experience the magic of iPad for themselves,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s COO. “As we approach the holiday season, we are very happy that customers will now be able to buy iPad Wi-Fi + 3G at AT&T Stores.“
Apple’s iPad is already doing a great work and penetrating itself more deep in the market. With the support of two biggest network carrier AT&T and Verizon, the device will be able to get more attention.
