A minor but aggravating double standard has been overturned: Verizon has waived its $35 Android tablet activation fee, retroactive to March 1st. There had been no such surcharge for iPad purchases, because honestly what is an activation fee, anyway? Other than, you know, a way to squeeze every last bit of blood from the stone that is your wallet.

Oh speaking of which, the offer is only valid if you buy a month-to-month data plan; no telling what will happen when that raft of Wi-Fi Android tablets hits stores in the coming months. [Android Community via SlashGear]
