Verizon stores to start selling iPads tomorrow

The nation's largest wireless carrier will be offering the tablet bundled with its MiFi mobile hotspot for $629 and up.

Apple's iPad will make its long-awaited sales debut in more than 2,000 Verzion stores tomorrow. The nation's largest wireless carrier will be offering the tablet bundled with its MiFi mobile hotspot.

With the hotspot, Verizon wireless users can create a WiFi "cloud" to share a 3G connection with up to five devices.

A MiFi 2200 hotspot, which is small enough to fit in a pocket, will be bundled with the 16GB WiFi version of the iPad for $629.99; with the 32GB edition, for $729.99; and with the 64GB model for $829.99. Purchases of the iPad bundles can buy a 1GB data plan from Verizon for $20 a month; a 3GB plan for $35 a month and a 50GB plan for $50 a month. Only customers buying the iPad-MiFi bundle can take advantage of those data rates. Although a service agreement must be signed when a bundle is purchased, the wireless plans are renewed on a month-to-month basis and there are no termination fees.

The MiFi 2200 sells at Verizon's online store for $269.99, but with a two-year agreement and online discount, it can be obtained for free.

Although the iPad will be sold at Verizon's wireless stores, the 3G version of the device won't be offered by the carrier.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
