Apple's iPad is available through Verizon Wireless and AT&T as of today.
Verizon isbundled with a MiFi Mobile Hotspot that lets people connect to the carrier's 3G network on the tablet computer. Verizon is offering the 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB iPad models for $629.99, $729.99, and $829.99, respectively. Verizon is also selling the iPad without the MiFi bundle for $499, $599, and $699, depending on the desired capacity.
According to Verizon, the carrier. The cheapest option offers 1GB of monthly data for $20. The prices go up to $35, $50, and $80 per month for 3GB, 5GB, and 10GB of monthly usage, respectively. Verizon said that its plans are month-to-month, so people are not required to sign a contract to access its 3G network.
Although AT&T has been the carrier for iPads with 3G access, it hadn't directly sold the tablet computers until today. Unlike Verizon, AT&T is offering the iPad with Wi-Fi and 3G, which means customers won't need an additional device to access 3G. AT&T is offering the iPad with Wi-Fi and 3G for $629, $729, and $829, depending on the customer's desired capacity. AT&T is offering two data plans: a 250MB option for $15 per month and a 2GB plan for $25 per month.
Like with Verizon, AT&T customers do not need to sign a contract to access the carrier's 3G network.
More significant than the fact that Apple is getting the iPad into more retail stores before the holiday-shopping season is the speculation created by Verizon selling the iPad. For years, people have been speculating about when. Verizon actually selling the iPad gives consumers some hope that an iPhone running on Verizon's network isn't so far off.
