iPad 2 rumors have been ripping around the Web for the past month or so. Now come reports of a Verizon iPad 2.
Apple is preparing a CDMA-capable edition of the iPad 2, which would allow the second-generation – and thus far quasi-mythical – iPad to work on the Verizon data network. That's the news this week from the folks at DigiTimes, a Taiwanese paper that has reported extensively – and usually accurately – on the development of new Apple devices.
According to DigiTimes, Apple will sell a grand total of three different varieties of iPad 2 units in 2011. The first iPad 2 will come equipped with only a Wi-Fi antenna. The second iPad 2 will come equipped with a 3G antenna and a Wi-Fi antenna, making the tablet compatible (as is now the case) with the AT&T network. The third iPad unit would ship with Wi-Fi and CDMA antennas, the latter being the configuration used by Verizon and Sprint.
In other words, a Verizon iPad 2 is on the way.
