AT&T Drops Price of iPad 3G By Another $100


AT&T has reduced the price of the original 3G-capable iPadby another $100, adding to the existing $100 discount that it introduced following the introduction of the iPad 2. That means that starting today, you can now get an iPad 3G + Wi-Fi for as little as $429 in the U.S.

The $429 model is the 16 GB version, while the 32 GB and 64 GB Wi-Fi + 3G iPads now sell for $529 and $629 respectively at AT&T retail locations¬†according to The Loop, although at AT&T’s official website, the price for both the 32 GB and 64 GB model as of this writing is $529 (this may be a typo, but we’ve contacted AT&T and will let you know if that info is in fact correct). All models still sell for $100 more on clearance at Apple’s official online store. The new pricing means that you’ll pay only $30 more for a 3G-equipped model when compared to the Wi-Fi-only iPad boasting the same storage capacity. Even if you don’t foresee yourself using 3G that often, the negligible additional cost and minimum $14.99 data plan purchase with no additional commitment makes this a very smart buy.

If you’re on the fence about whether to buy a new or an old model iPad, a $200 difference might help make up your mind. Anyone eager to take advantage of this deal?
