After months and months of speculation as to whether or not Verizon would get a CDMA version of the iPhone, there's now a new rumor that the iPad is getting retooled to work with the nation's #1 carrier as well. reports that a source told them that Verizon is already running tests on its own version of the iPad. That would mean that Apple has actually already created a CDMA-compatible model.

I would have to imagine that Apple is turning its focus far away from AT&T now, after the formerly exclusive iPhone/iPad service provider dropped its unlimited data package and now forces new customers to pay a tiered rate for mobile data. Owners of the iPad 3G could be paying over $100 a month under AT&T's new setup.

AT&T's exclusivity contract with Apple expires this year and there was been some conflicting information as to whether or not it will be renewed. I really don't see how or why it could possibly make sense for Apple to extend its exclusivity. There's no possible offer that AT&T could make, because the iPhone and iPad have grown too big to be contained by anybody.

For now, who knows what all this speculation and rumor-mongering will bring? I think that it's clear, though, that the iPhone and iPad are destined for very wide expansion.
