Apple's iPad: order yours later this week

Only US customers will be offered the product on that day, he or she continues, and only the non-3G model will be included. Shipments should follow in around 30 days. Apple said "late March", when the device was announced late in January.

The Wi-Fi only iPad will come in 16, 32 and 64GB incarnations priced at $499, $599 and $699, respectively. That's £323-452 at the current Dollar-Sterling exchange rate, but UK pricing has not yet been announced. Maybe later this week...

The 3G iPad will come in the same choice of capacities but cost $629-829 (£407-536). ®
