Yep, starting Friday you can stop over at AT&T and get your new iPad. The PR doesn’t mention a price, but the Apple site lists it starting as $629.99 for the 16gb wi-fi plus 4G. If you visit the AT&T page for the iPad you’ll notice they’re still selling the iPad 2 starting at $529.99 and that’s for wi-fi plus 3G. I’m curious as to how AT&T is offering it on Friday but Apple says you won’t be getting it for 2-3 weeks on their site?!
AT&T today announced it will offer the new iPad with Wi-Fi + 4G in the United States on Friday, March 16.
