Verizon Getting a CDMA iPad

Paul Lilly

This new-found romance between Verizon and Apple is just getting started. Following the long anticipated launch of the iPhone 4 on Verizon, the wireless telco says it's going to sell a version of the iPad that connects directly to its network, according to BusinessWeek .

The updated iPad will sport an embedded chip that will allow it to connect without any extra hardware. As it currently stands, Verizon customers who want 3G connectivity have to purchase a MiFi card. Apple does sell 3G versions of its iPad, but none are compatible with Verizon's CDMA network.

No word yet on when the new iPads with embedded chips will be released.
