Was just watching some prime time television (yes, we actually do that from time to time) and we saw the pretty impressive iPad commercial from Verizon below. It certainly does two things we haven’t really seen in an iPad commercial before: it shows it working with a mobile hotspot and emphasizes the ability to use it outside.

The commercial was uploaded to YouTube by Verizon earlier today, so it’s brand spanking new, and actually, when all said and done, we kind of like better than the Apple commercials (obviously, unlike Mark Zuckerberg, Verizon thinks of the iPad as a mobile device). What do you think, pretty slick right? Of course, we might be seeing a whole lot more Apple-focused ads from Verizon early next year…
