$300 iPad? Verizon wins.

Hopefully not too many hopped on the bandwagon to buy the first generation iPad for $400, a deal offered by AT&T just last week. Verizon is offering the first-gen iPad for $299.99. That’s about the price of a netbook or even many MP3/MP4 players. It seems like just another way Verizon can compete head to head with wireless giant AT&T. It’s kind of cool seeing how the recent T-Mobile merge has sparked such competition between the time-tested rivals. If you want to have a piece of the action, just visit your local Verizon Wireless retail location. The other version of the iPad are seeing similar pricecuts with the 32GB model at $399, and the 64GB at $499.99. Verizon does not offer built-in 3G models of the original iPad, so I suppose, there’s your catch. Check out the ipad commercial displayed below the specs!
