    I am waiting for the 3G model to come out. If Apple switches from AT&T to Verizon...(which I hope they do cause I will get an Iphone) Will the Ipad still work with Verizons 3G? Thanks

    Hopefully, that would be the ideal thing for apple to do. Make it available for Verizon, and also make it iPad friendly too.

    It's a good chance that the iPad 3G is already (massively) in production. I'd doubt that, if Apple does have their iPhone on Verizon, that they switch from AT&T to Verizon, at least on this generation of iPad.

    iPad as of now is GSM – they'd have to make a whole new CDMA version to work on Verizon. Quite unlikely considering the awesome deal they have already with AT&T

    I would totally get an iPhone if they went to Verizon, but it's VERY unlikely. It would take them too long to move to a new service like that and they will most likely stay with AT&T (I hate that service provider, ugh).

    If Verizon would get the iPhone, I'd buy it day one for sure. But it's highly unlikely.

    I actually don't think I'd ever get an iPhone; I love the iPod touch (and soon the iPad), but I'd rather have an Android device. And Verizon has plenty of quality Android devices (DROID, HTC DROID Incredible), or even Windows Phone 7.

    Yeah, another thing is if Verizon got the iPhone they would be like the TOP network over everyone because of their good service and they have the Droid, iPhone, and Nexus One.
