I sold my four year old MacBook Pro this morning and took the proceeds over to the Apple store in Annapolis, Maryland, where I purchased a new iPad 64 GB Verizon 4G for the same amount, give or take a couple of dollars. No waiting, no ordering, plenty of inventory. I did not initialize or sign up for Verizon services yet. I'm still a little confused about this. I stopped by the Verizon store and was told the cheapest plan was $30 a month with automatic billing. I thought, perhaps wrongly, that there was a $20 plan and once you used up the 2 GB in that plan, you could buy more or...not, and that there was no monthly recurring fee. I wish Verizon would start offering a multi-device data plan and allow rolling over of unused data from month to month. Until it does, maybe PDAnet is the best answer.
