iPad Now Available for Pre-order


Apple’s much talked about iPad is now available for pre-order.

The Wi-Fi version of the iPad will deliver on April 3 or be available for in-store pickup then (if you chose that option). The 3G version still has no official ship date, just an ominous “late April.”

I pre-ordered the 16GB Wi-Fi version first thing this morning and let’s just say all the little extras add up fast. The $499 iPad quickly turned in to the $730 iPad between AppleCare and a few accessories. Such is the life of an early adopter, I suppose.

So, will you be pre-ordering an iPad today? If so, which one?

After adding accessories, Tax and a pair of Shure SRH840 headphones, my order was about $1550.

Stupid Apple Tax :)

Me too. 32gb WI-Fi. No accessories for now until I see how I end up using the thing.


Wait until next year for one that does everything the original should have done.
I’m sorry Apple, I learnt my lesson with the original iPhone.

I am waiting for 3G but don’t think I’m not debating with myself to reserve a wi-fi just because I want it in my hand, lol.

I pre-ordered the 32 gb Wi-Fi 15 minutes after the website went up!
