The Apple iPad is coming to Verizon, according to remarks made by Verizon CFO Francis Shammo. The tablet will join the iPhone 4 on the CDMA network.

Details on pricing and a release date have yet to be revealed, but Bloomberg is reporting that a version of the Apple iPad will soon be available that can connect to Verizon’s wireless network.Apple iPad

As of the announcement date, the 3G Apple iPad is exclusive to the AT&T network. However, the Wi-Fi Apple iPad is available in Verizon stores, bundled with a Verizon Mi-Fi mobile hotspot. The Verizon iPad bundle costs $130 more than the Wi-Fi iPad available from AT&T and in other retail outlets.

It’s doubtful the Verizon iPad will be a 4G device as the recently-announced Verizon iPhone is limited to Verizon’s 3G network. Verizon announced a 4G Samsung Galaxy Tab, a seven-inch Android tablet and chief iPad rival device, at CES 2011.

Rumors and speculation suggests Apple may announce the next-generation Apple iPad in the coming weeks. The Apple iPad was originally announced close to one year ago, on January 27, 2010.
