Verizon is getting the iPad! Could the iPhone be next? Eh, maybe, but you've gotta understand that the iPad is only sort of coming to Verizon.
Could it be? Finally? After years of hopes and wishes, rumors and speculation, it's becoming increasingly likely that, yes, the iPhone is coming to Verizon.

What do you think tablets are best used for? Reading e-books like on a Kindle? Playing games? Maybe you've found you're most fond of watching TV. At least, that's what Motorola hopes, as it's making a tablet with Verizon that will stress its FiOS TV connection.
