Joseph Tsai reporting for DigiTimes:
Apple is expected to release three versions of iPad 2, supporting either or a combination of Wi-Fi, UMTS and CDMA, for 2011 with mass production to start as early as the later half of January.
I wouldn’t be surprised if Apple decided to release an iPad that was compatible with Verizon’s cellular network. But, I would be surprised if Apple started shipping them in January. An announcement in January is one thing, but shipping in January is a different matter entirely.
