AT&T now selling iPad 3G units online

AT&T is now selling the iPad with Wi-Fi + 3G online. The lone iPad 3G service provider in the U.S. is offering the same prices as Apple’s retail and online stores—$629 for the 16GB model, $729 for the 32GB, and $829 for 64GB units. Other links on the page lead to iPad accessory offerings, a page to order replacement Micro-SIM cards, and an AT&T Wi-Fi Hot Spot finder. Despite being the only U.S. service provider for the device, AT&T didn’t begin in-store sales of the iPad until October, the same month that the iPad debuted at Walmart, Target, and rival carrier Verizon. Notably, AT&T does not specify whether iPad 3G units ordered today will arrive in time for the holidays.

How is AT&T the “lone iPad 3G service provider in the U.S.”? Verizon has had iPad 3G plans for some months.

#1,

No, they haven’t. The iPad 3G is a GSM device - Verizon offers data plans for a MiFi portable hotspot, which it bundles with a standard Wi-Fi-only iPad.

I stand corrected. However, one would not know this from the Verizon website, their ads, or well, anything obvious. The implication, and, hence, my assumption, is that you can buy the data plan if you have a 3G iPad and only need the mifi with a wifi only iPad.

I need to go back and revise my comments on the relative value of the MiFi from back when the Sprint & iPad commercials launched :) It definitely went up a few notches in my book if the 3G iPad is stuck with AT&T.
