Verizon Wireless has announced its partnership with Apple by releasing the Wi-Fi iPad coupled with Verizon MiFi 2200 Mobile Hotspot. As a promotion campaign, Verizon has released a dazzling iPad commercial showing a Wi-Fi iPad being used with Verizon's very own Wi-Fi hotspot card.
There is no difference between a standard Wi-Fi iPad and Verizon's Wi-Fi iPad, the only difference is that it comes with a hotspot card to use Verizon's CDMA/3G network. A question mark however still remains - why Verizon is not offering iPad 3G?
Have a look at Verizon's commercial titled as "breakaway".
Verizon started selling Wi-Fi iPads along with MiFi 2200 mobile hotspot on Oct 28, 2010. Following are the iPad prices along with Verizon's monthly data plans:
