Pointed out by Mac Rumors, both versions of the iPad which are retailing on the Apple Refurbished store are Wi-Fi + cellular variants that have their networks bound to Verizon.

Thus, the devices are slapped with reduced tags, letting buyers purchase them with discounts.
The mini variant in question is a 16GB model with Wi-Fi and cellular functionality, and is being offered at $429. Released in October last year, this trimmed down version of the company’s tablet range, carries on it a 7.9-inch LED-backlit display, granting a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels at 163ppi. A 5MP iSight camera finds its way onto the back of this slate, while a FaceTime HD snapper is present on its front for video calling purposes. It runs on a dual core A5 chip, and offers up to 10 hours of battery life.
The 4th generation iPad on the other hand, is selling in its refurbished form at $579, thus taking $50 off its original retail value. This is also a 16GB Wi-Fi + cellular variant of the tablet. Unlike the smaller tablet however, it bears a 9.7-inch Retina display, garnering a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels at 264ppi. Moreover, this one too grants a 5MP iSight shooter and a FaceTime HD camera, whereas its processing is handled by a comparatively faster dual core A6X chip.
