iPad 3G Lands Today, Clarifying the 3G Service

1004ipad hero 242x300 iPad 3G Lands Today, Clarifying the 3G ServiceIt’s April 30th, the day in which iPad 3G pre-orders start landing (and have been landing) on door steps all over the country and in Apple stores. It’s kinda like April 3rd all over again, there’s unboxing posts and videos that look an awful lot like the ones we saw earlier in the month. In fact, it’s really just another iPad landing day, err – wait… that’s exactly what it is.

The iPad 3G is essentially the same killer device that landed on the 3rd but with a couple of significant changes: the addition of 3G (a la AT&T) and an aGPS receiver for true GPS location services. Apple states that the 3G radio us unlocked to use with any 3G service, however the frequencies will only work with AT&T in the USA (sorry T-Mobile lovers – err, ATT haters).

The beauty of the 3G iPad is it’s ability to sign up for 3G data services right from the device. You can also cancel anytime, so there’s no locked-in, long contract to worry about. Don’t need 3G? no worries, cancel it. Going on a trip to Florida? Ok, just add the service back via the settings apps.

AT&T released some further details on how the 3G data plan works on the iPad. In essence, you’re in control (and that’s a good thing). There are two plans available, 250MB for $14.95 per month or Unlimited for $29.95 per month. On the lower plan (250MB), if you hit the limit before the month is over then you have the option of going without (until the 30 days is up) or you can either buy another 250MB block for $14.95 or convert to unlimited.

With both 3G plans you have access to AT&T’s 20,000+ WiFi hot spots at no additional cost.

Both plans will auto-renew at the end of the 30 day term, so if you don’t want it for next month then don’t forget to cancel before the anniversary date. However, here again lies the beauty of 3G on the iPad, you can cancel anytime, right from your device. No calls to AT&T, no long waits, no hassles.
