Apple iPad Pricing

The pricing has been fully broken down for the iPad.   Basically, it is variable on two factors: storage and 3G.  There will be the classic 3 flavors of storage sizes for the iPad: 16 GB, 32 GB, 64 GB.   Adding 3G network compatibility will cost you $130. Prices start at $499. Here is the full table:

16 GB 32 GB 64 GB
WiFi Only $499 $599 $699
WiFi + 3G $629 $729 $829

However, 3G will end up costing more due to the need for a data plan.  Mind you, there is no contract necessary, which is a refreshing change from the norm of mobile pricing. AT&T is also offering surprisingly low data plans: 250 mb/month for $15/month, and unlimited data for $30/month, opposed to the traditional $60/month unlimited for laptops.   The final hidden costs will be in accessories, most notably a keyboard dock (similar to earlier rumors), for people who don’t want to deal with extended virtual keyboard typing, and other things like cases and cords.  Expect the WiFi model to be available in March and the 3G capable one in April.
