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.

HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
