Verizon is looking to turn no-iPad 3G lemons in iPad Wi-Fi + MiFi lemonade by craftily counter-programming the official AT&T data plans with their own potent portable internet and router combo, says Engadget.

You'll save $130 off the price of the iPad 3G, but a 5GB Verizon MiFi plan will run you $60 vs. "unlimited" AT&T data for $30. Then again, you can use the MiFi for more than one device (and more than one at a time).

So, is Verizon's plan a good one? Would you consider iPad Wi-Fi + Verizon MiFi on April 3rd rather than iPad 3G on AT&T in late April?
