They're Selling iPads at Verizon!


I couldn't believe my eyes -- they're selling iPads at Verizon? Could iPhones be close behind?

I drove down the hill this evening with my grandson to get the Android X he wanted for Christmas, and came away with the Android, a new water-proof phone for my dad (he's hard on phones), cases for both, AND a wireless keyboard to go with my (actually the school's) iPad. The keyboard is my Christmas present to myself.

Yes, the prices for the iPad and accessories are exactly the same as at Apple. Neil, the super-nice salesman pictured above, pulled up the Apple Store screen to show me.

I'm waiting for the iPhone to come to Verizon, I told  Neil. Me and a lot of other people, I added. Neil's shrugged his shoulders and said he wouldn't know until two or three days before it actually happens, if it happens. 

So for now, mum's the word at the Kahului Verizon. But my hopes are definitely UP.

Thanks for the great service, Neil!
