If you’re in the market for an iPad and MiFi combo this holiday season, you may want to skip Verizon’s bundle and head to your local Best Buy -- they’re offering free Mobile Hotspot bundles from Verizon, AT&T and Sprint.
The iPad invasion has taken an interesting turn this week; after spreading to Target and Wal-Mart stores, the device is landing in the most unlikely of places: Verizon Wireless stores nationwide. Although the deal gets Verizon in bed with Apple, it’s not quite what you might expect.
It was only a matter of time before someone made this idea a reality. According to iPodNN, Sprint is preparing a case to fit both a Mi-Fi device and an iPod touch in a single design. The device, called the ZTE Peel would allow the iPod touch and surrounding devices to connect via Wi-Fi to the mobile hotspot.
It was a rare moment on Monday, as technology failed Apple CEO Steve Jobs during his WWDC 2010 keynote. While trying to show a demo of The New York Times website on both an iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 to demonstrate the company’s new Retina Display, the Wi-Fi choked and forced Jobs to move onto the next thing on his list. But could it have been the fault of the iPhone 4’s own drivers?
