Verizon to get Apple’s 3G iPad, too

Verizon will sell and support a new version of the iPad that can directly connect to the carrier’s 3G data network, according to a report by Bloomberg.

Late Tuesday, the publication’s Web site cited comments by Verizon Chief Financial Officer Francis Shammo during an interview that day at the unveiling of an Apple iPhone able to use Verizon’s voice and data networks.

Verizon has sold the iPad — both the Wi-Fi and 3G models — since late October 2010. To support the 3G-capable version, Verizon has bundled a credit card-sized MiFi device with the tablet that lets users create a short-range Wi-Fi hotspot. Data plans for the MiFi start at $15 a month.

Currently, only AT&T supports the 3G hardware built into the more expensive iPad models.
