Verizon reportedly looking to capitalize on iPad using MiFi

According to the leaked Verizon Wireless memo, which first appeared on the blog Engadget, Verizon sees the launch of the WiFi-enabled iPad on April 3 as an opportunity to sign customers up for a MiFi device and accompanying Verizon data plan. The memo includes talking points for Verizon sales representatives intended to make sure potential customers are aware that the WiFi version of the iPad is not exclusive to AT&T, and that customers will need to pay more for the 3G-enabled version of the iPad. The memo also takes a shot at AT&T, noting, "Why pay more for the 3G version and get 3G service on an overloaded network with limited coverage?" Article
