Verizon's new iPad features mobile hotspot, AT&T doesn't

On Wednesday Apple announced the "New iPad," which is available for pre-order and shipping on March 16th. Both Verizon and AT&T will have support for 4G LTE, however, there is a big difference in one specific feature so far. Verizon's new iPad will feature a built in mobile hotspot with support for up to 5 devices, while AT&T is "working on it" currently. Data plans begin at 2GB for $30 and go up to 10GB for $80 that includes the mobile hotspot feature. If you need more than five devices connected to your network you can pickup a WAW Router to share with more users and get Ethernet out capability.
