After searching the forums and not finding this question, I thought I would ask.
Can I use a IPAD with Verizon WI-FI hotspots? From what I can see there is no WI-FI connect software for anything other than Windows, so I am thinking I can not. Is this correct?

It is pretty lame on Verizon's part. Like many corporations, decisions are based on the assumption that customers are cows that need to be milked - I don't meet the "system requirements" for the wifi connect shim that is required for hot spot connectivity - so I will not be using it.
Even if I did, I would choose not use "wifi connect" - as smells way to much like a user private data collection tool.
If indeed it is, it would good if its true nature were exposed - and perhaps prompt mass user outrage and the inevitable congressional inquiries.
Perhaps a Verizon representative share the Verizon party line on what "wifi connect" is for, as it obviously not needed from technical perspective.
I'm not sure when this happened or if it's always been true, but you can use Verizon Wi-Fi with other devices now. See http://wyang0.blogspot.com/2012/01/verizon-wi-fi-for-all-devices-mac-linux.html
