Verizon stores to start selling iPads tomorrow

The nation's largest wireless carrier will be offering the tablet bundled with its MiFi mobile hotspot for $629 and up.

Apple's iPad will make its long-awaited sales debut in more than 2,000 Verzion stores tomorrow. The nation's largest wireless carrier will be offering the tablet bundled with its MiFi mobile hotspot.

With the hotspot, Verizon wireless users can create a WiFi "cloud" to share a 3G connection with up to five devices.

A MiFi 2200 hotspot, which is small enough to fit in a pocket, will be bundled with the 16GB WiFi version of the iPad for $629.99; with the 32GB edition, for $729.99; and with the 64GB model for $829.99. Purchases of the iPad bundles can buy a 1GB data plan from Verizon for $20 a month; a 3GB plan for $35 a month and a 50GB plan for $50 a month. Only customers buying the iPad-MiFi bundle can take advantage of those data rates. Although a service agreement must be signed when a bundle is purchased, the wireless plans are renewed on a month-to-month basis and there are no termination fees.

The MiFi 2200 sells at Verizon's online store for $269.99, but with a two-year agreement and online discount, it can be obtained for free.

Although the iPad will be sold at Verizon's wireless stores, the 3G version of the device won't be offered by the carrier.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
