Now that you have settled down here is the news; the iPad will be sold in Verizon stores by the end of this month. But, this announcement does not mean that this iPad is CDMA capable, which makes the announcement slightly less shiny and new.
For those who aren't down on the new fangled cell phone lingo, CDMA is the network that Verizon runs their signals off of. The iPad as it is now runs off a GSM network that ATT uses. This is an announcement that you can pay for the iPad and then pay a monthly fee to run their at home network so you can use your new tablet.
While not necessarily groundbreaking this does pave the way for the unicorn down the road, the Verizon iPhone. The rumblings seem to be getting stronger towards Big Red finally getting Apple's money printer sometime soon.
