iPad here, iPad there…you know the rest. In two successive announcements involving the immensely successful Apple tablet – iPad, both Verizon and At&T declared they’ll start selling it in their stores by the end of this month. Verizon will sell a combination – iPad and MiFi 2200 mobile hotspot for roughly the price of a 3G iPad – $629. For this price you’ll get the iPad WiFi 16GB model and the MiFi gadget. The 32GB will set you back $729 while the biggest brother 64GB version is a nice $829 (have you made your holiday shopping plans yet ?). The Verizon data plan for iPad, including 1GB monthly traffic is just $20 which is not that bad.
On the AT&T side, you can find the 3G version starting October 28th, selling for about the same prices and including AT&T standard iPhone data plans and prices, the cheaper being $14.99 for 200MB of monthly traffic allowance included. As a bonus, AT&T also offers WiFi access to their rather impressive 23,000 available WiFi Hot Spots.
