Verizon Wireless Plans on Selling CDMA Version of the iPad

According to a report from Bloomberg, Verizon Wireless also plans on selling a CDMA version of the Apple iPad which connects directly into their network. In a recent interview, Verizon Communications’ chief financial officer, Francis Shammo stated, “Verizon will get an embedded chip in the iPad for use on its network.” Currently, Verizon customers use the carrier’s MiFi Mobile Hotspot to access data.

The report did not provide an estimated time of arrival for the CDMA version of the Apple iPad. However, with rumors circulating of the next generation iPad coming out shortly, Verizon may decide to hold off for the latest version of the device.

What are your thoughts? Would you hold off purchasing the iPad 2 if it were running on Verizon Wireless’ network?
