iPad 3G Arrives Friday, Data Plans Explained
The iPad that many have been waiting for will be available this Friday: the one with 3G capability. Apple promised a late April delivery, so we suppose the 30th qualifies, but way to delay, Steve-O.
Anyway, the rates have been out for a while, but AT&T has posted a nice, simple, one page explanation of how the two different plans they'll offer will work. For those that need to know, there's a $14.99 per month plan that allows 250MB in data transfer, and a $29.99 plan for all you can eat (correct - all you can eat - no rumored 5GB max).
The neat thing here is that not only can you check your data usage at any time using the on-device data management, you'll get warnings from the iPad if as you're about to hit your 250MB limit: one at 20% remaining, one at 10% remaining, and one at zip.
At any time you get warned, you can choose to add more data. Details can be read in this PDF from AT&T
