Apple recalls some Verizon iPad 2 tablets

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Apple Inc is recalling some of its iPad2 tablets that is designed to run on Verizon's network for connectivity issues.

"Duplicate MEID codes were flashed onto an extremely small number of iPad units for the Verizon 3G network," an Apple spokeswoman said but declined to say how many units were impacted by the issue.

Verizon declined to comment.

MEID, which stands for mobile equipment identifier, is a unique number that is used to identify a mobile device when it connects to the network. Two devices cannot have the same MEIDcode.

Apple is replacing the affected units that were already sold with new ones.
