iPad Still Coming to Verizon?
Silicon Alley Insider reports that it has received information from Clayton Morris of FOXNews.com claiming that Apple and Verizon are still in talks to bring the iPad to Verizon's wireless network. An Apple-Verizon partnership for the iPad had been the subject of many analyst claims and rumors in the months leading up to the device's introduction, and many observers were surprised to see that only AT&T was announced as a cellular data provider for the iPad.
Apple is working with Verizon on a version of its iPad tablet, despite Apple only announcing an AT&T partnership, according to Fox News Channel's Clayton Morris, who just spoke with a Verizon source.
No additional details are given, although Morris is reportedly in the process of preparing an article for publication on FOXNews.com.
Morris has become a relatively frequent commenter on Apple and the iPad, having claimed confirmation of Apple's media event as early as late December (albeit off by one day) and noting that it would be focused on the "mobility space". His source was incorrect, however, in its claims that the media event would include discussion of iPhone OS 4.0 and iLife 2010. Just days before the event, Morris' source claimed that both AT&T and Verizon were in last-minute discussions to offer service for the iPad.
