Now that Verizon has cemented its relationship with Apple publicly by, it's no surprise Apple's other flagship wireless device won't be far behind.
Verizon will be selling an iPad with embedded chips that allow the touch-screen tablet to connect directly to its network, Verizon Communications CFO Francis Shammo told Bloomberg Businessweek today. He did not give any official date for when that would take place.
You can buy an iPad from Verizon right now, but it will come boxed with a separate wireless device that allows it to run on Verizon's CDMA network. The current model of the iPad has embedded GSM chips that allow it to connect directly to the networks of operators like AT&T.
Verizon, a move that was taken by many Apple observers as a strong hint that an iPhone offered through Verizon would be next.
