Apple confirms Verizon iPad 2 recall

Apple has confirmed that it has been forced to recall a number of CDMA iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G units. “Duplicate MEID codes were flashed onto an extremely small number of iPad units for the Verizon 3G network,” an Apple spokeswoman told Reuters. MEID, or mobile equipment identifier, is a unique number used to identify a device when it connects to the network, and must be unique for each device. Apple declined to say how many units were affected; the company is replacing affected units that were already sold with new ones.
