Verizon and iPad Are Getting Cozy

According to the generally reliable Boy Genius Report, Verizon Wireless is in the process of testing iPads compatible with their CDMA network, along with a 4G model. An iPad on Verizon? Be still my heart.

The news is particularly welcome on the heels of AT&T's new pricing model, which will be especially onerous on data-heavy iPad owners. (Then again, Verizon's on record as being in favor of tiered 4G plans as well.) And while AT&T had a five-year exclusivity agreement in place for the iPhone, there's no indication that a similar deal was reached at the iPad's launch. We'll update if and when more detail becomes more available. [BGR]
