3G versions of the iPad expected to arrive on April 30
The second phase of Apple's plan will go into full steam on April 30th when the 3G enabled versions of the Apple iPad are expected to become readily available. On a brighter note, those eager international buyers can circle down May 10 when Apple intends on spilling the beans on its international pricing. With more than 500,000 Wi-Fi only iPads sold, all eyes will be on April 30th as consumers look snatch up an iPad that'll truly be connected at all times. At the same time, we will see how AT&T's network will continue to operate as there will no doubt be any shortage of customers looking to start using AT&T's 3G network for all their iPad needs. Pricing for the 16GB Apple iPad 3G will be $629 – which is only $130 more than the Wi-Fi only version. If 16GB isn't ample enough for you, then the $729 32GB and $829 64GB models should me more than enough to satisfy your insatiable appetite.

There is a known Wi-Fi issue...basically when you connect, disconnect, and later reconnect you may see an error that says another device is using this IP address. For some reason the iPad's DCHP is not releasing the IP and going through the renewel process when it reconnects. Hopefully there will be a software update soon. Found an article that goes through the fixes if you are experiencing them: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2362319,00.asp

*Yawn* Overrated netbook-like product without a netbook's functionality and capability should not belong in PHONEarena. By the way, I am just expressing my feeling toward iPads. I don't mind someone liking and using one.

iPad is not a netbook...it's an iPad and is its own category of portable computing device with wireless data connections and it belongs on Phone Arena just like the netbooks. Its not for everyone, but I look forward toHP slate is coming this Fall its going to run Windows 7...It is going to be awesome! Not sure when the google tablets are going to launch, but it will be interesting to compare all 3 devices
