You know…If Verizon was smart

So here I am an early iPad adopter and all. WiFi was enough for me. There’s a hotspot almost everywhere these days. I was really in the market for a MiFi type device prior to getting an iPad anyway.

I’m currently in the process of getting a t-shirt and “personal badging” business off the ground. We’ll be selling our products at trade shows, car, motorcycle and bicycle events around the country. A MiFi makes a perfect companion to the Quickbooks Merchant account we have. So with all that said, on to my point.

Verizon, call me. (or read on)

- iPad(64gb) 3G version is $829
- AT&T wireless plan with no contracts is $14.99 (250mb) or $29.99 (unlimited*/5gb)

- iPad(64gb) WiFi Version is $699
- Verizon MiFi device $269 with no contract. $39.99 (250mb) or $59,99 (5gb)

Hey Verizon “marketing genius dudes”… Why not offer the MiFi for $130 at no contract, the difference between the two iPad versions, and lower your data plans?

Wouldn’t that be a great way for you to show, likely iPhone customers, that your network is better?

Couldn’t you market your device connects with three others, not just your iPad?

How about the handy little cases that Sprint is giving away at BestBuy stores?

…too bad you didn’t think of this the day the iPad rolled out.

PS: I’m in PR/Marketing and looking for freelance work. …call me
