Verizon will offer CDMA iPad too After announcing a CDMA iPhone 4 available on its network in February, word also came from Verizon about an iPad that will use its CDMA network.
Verizon Communications CFO Francis Shammo revealed the upcoming iPad to Bloomberg, which will feature built in CDMA features. Verizon already offers Apple's iPad in bundles with its MiFi 2200 Mobile Hotspot device, which does not come cheap.

Shammo did not reveal anything else about the iPad. He didn't indicate whether it will be the same iPad with just CDMA support added (like the iPhone announced Tuesday) or if it will be a new rumored next generation iPad.

The revelation comes as more bad news to AT&T, who up until Tuesday was officially the only provider offering the iPhone. AT&T also sells an iPad that uses its 3G network.

I have a 100 Orange San Francisco (ZTE Blade (Android phone)) on Virgin mobile and get pretty much perfect HSDPA coverage.

A 400+ phone using a newer out of date network standard isn't really news, more stealing from the stupid. But then again, so's selling a phone 'you're holding wrong'.
