Wow, what a surprise. According to the Verizon website, they'll begin selling the iPad on October 28 bundled with the MiFi Mobile Hotspot. They say this will give you WiFi just about anywhere. Prices start at $20/month for 1GB of data, compared to Apple's $15 for 200MB and $25 for 2GB. Like Apple's plans, these will be month to month with no obligation. This sounds like an excellent option, especially if you're in an area with weak or no AT&T coverage. You can see a press release on Apple's site. Note that Verizon is selling the WiFi model, not 3G. Also, AT&T will begin selling the iPad in its stores on the same day.
