Confirmed! Apple Coming to Verizon–To Sell iPads

Apple and Verizon have yet to announce an iPhone deal. But this sure gets them pretty close: The carrier is going to start selling iPads.

Apple (AAPL) still has an exclusive wireless relationship with AT&T, but Verizon will step around that hurdle by bundling the Wi-Fi version of Apple’s tablet with its own wireless MiFi hotspot device. It will sell an iPad-specific wireless plan that will give users a gigabyte of data for $20 a month.

Verizon (VZ) will also sell Wi-Fi iPads without a wireless bundle; sales begin October 28. Meanwhile, it hasn’t abandoned AT&T (T), and will begin selling its tablets through that carrier’s stores on the same date.
