Apple Working With Verizon to Sell Tablet?

A new report suggests that Apple may sell its long rumored tablet through Verizon wireless.

Scott Moritz from the TheStreet.com believes that an initial version of the tablet will be subsidized by Verizon; however, he has been told that the Apple and Verizon partnership "won't be as tightly integrated" as the Apple and AT&T one.

How this subsidy will work is still unclear. Since the tablet will only need a data plan the revenue earned by Verizon is much smaller then that from a typical smartphone. Thus the subsidy Verizon is willing to pay would similarly be smaller.

Moritz also reports that the tablet has been ready as a prototype for nearly a year but Apple has been reluctant to introduce the device. He suggests that with the success of the Kindle Apple may see now as a good time for the new device.
