New iPad release dates and pricing revealed: arriving on March 16th starting from $499
The third Apple iPad price remains the same and it’s launching in just over a week in the US. That’s one piece of news we were looking forward to hear and it’s now official. The iPad matches most rumors and hopes and, boy, those hopes were pretty high.

But with prices starting at $499 for the basic 16GB model, Apple is proving its consistent upgrade policy. Here are the prices of all the versions of the new iPad:

  • 16GB Wi-Fi-only for $499
  • 32GB Wi-Fi-only for $599
  • 64GB Wi-Fi-only for $699

  • 16GB 3G/4G LTE for $629
  • 32GB 3G/4G LTE for $729
  • 64GB 3G/4G LTE for $829

It will support plenty of bands including both AT&T and Verizon LTE frequencies.

The new iPad release date is set for March 16th for the US, which is next Friday - in just over a week. Other countries like Canada, the UK, Australia, France, Germany and Japan are getting it on the same date as well. Apple has worked out the logistics brilliantly this time - a second batch of 23 countries will get the new iPad on March 23rd.

Are you lining up to get one? It will be available in black and white right from the start, so you have your pick in color.

I love the idea Apple is able to put their products on the shelf within two weeks of the announcement!

"The iPad matches most rumors and hopes and, boy, those hopes were pretty high."

really?

here are some rumors:
removed the physical home button-nope
increased battery life-nope
camera with flash-nope
camera on par with iphone 4s-nope
e-sense-nope
sprint/tmobile/regional carrier availability-nope
upgraded front facing camera-nope
gorilla glass 2-nope
huge drop in ipad 2 prices ($100 off, cmon)-nope
name is ipad 2s/3/HD- nope, nope, nope

i dont consider any of those to be high hopes, since android tabs with all of those features (besides e-sense) are available now.

the only confirmed rumors are:
4g
retina-esque display
same price point as ipad 2
a5x dualcore processor
siri (maybe?)

The "new ipad" which most likely will become the ipad 2s is a total waste of money, just like super said above spend the extra 100-300 dollars for an actual laptop, it will do you more good in the long run.
