Apple is looking to hire a ‘Verizon iPad System Engineer’. This seems like pretty good confirmation that next year’s iPad 2 will support Verizon’s wireless network without the need for a separate personal WiFi router. 9to5Mac’s take:
Apple is building a version of the iPad 2 that will work on Verizon’s wireless network either in conjunction with GSM networks with a Gobi-like Chip (just like the Google ChomeOS CR-48) or as a seperate product/version.
Having the choice of Verizon or AT&T for iPad 3G/4G data will be yet another selling point for the device next year.
