iPad 3G arriving May 7

The Apple Store has been updated revealing the 3G iPad will be shipping by May 7 for customers in the U.S. This is three days before Apple will begin taking pre-orders for the device internationally. 

The 16, 32 and 64gb versions of the iPad will all be available on the day.

As previously announced AT&T will be offering the following data options for the iPad:

  • 250MB monthly data limit for $14.99 - No contract
  • Unlimited data for $29.99 - No contract

The current limit of 2 iPads per order remains. People hoping to get the iPad internationally can expect a release in late May with pre-orders beginning on May 10.

Interesting that they changed the shipping date. I preordered a 32GB iPad 3G, and just received an email from Apple stating the following:

To Our Valued Apple Customer:


Thank you for your recent order of the magical and revolutionary
iPad 3G.

We would like to confirm that your order will be shipped in late
April as communicated at the time you placed your order. You will
receive a confirmation notice when your order has shipped.

Must be shipping in May for new orders?

This will be good for Business Users. Not the regular consumer. Waste of money. Best to stick to wifi and buy take that 4G offer from Sprint or Verizon. - Wonder is AT&T has anything similar to mifi..

Stuill wondering what the "unbelievable price" for the iPad will be in the UK. I'm guessing it won't be unbelievable in a god way...

I have set aside £800 for the top model but I am expecting a little less.
