Apple iPad Air gets November 8th release date on U.S. Cellular
U.S.Cellular announced on Friday that the new full-sized Apple iPad Air will be available from the carrier on November 8th. The Wi-Fi + Cellular model will be offered to the carrier's subscriber's online. For as low as $5 a month, iPad users can get a 300MB data only plan for $5, or pay $10 a month for 1GB of data. $20 buys you 2GB for the month while $30 brings you 4GB. The plans go all the way up to 50GB, which is priced at $335 a month.

Also on Friday, a couple of less familiar regional carriers, Bluegrass Cellular and C Spire, announced their intentions to carry the 9.7 inch Apple iPad Air. No precise launch date was given, although customers of the four U.S. major carriers will get first crack at the tablet. Both Bluegrass and CSpire said the slab would arrive in the coming weeks. Neither of the two would disclose their pricing for the monthly service although CSpire did promise that it would launch the tablet "with a range of attractive data plans". If CSpire were to use its data only LTE plans, 1GB would be $20 a month, 3GB would be priced at $30 monthly and $50 a month would nab you 5GB.

The Apple iPad Air with Wi-Fi + Cellular is priced at $629 for 16GB, $729 for 32GB, $829 for 64GB and $929 for 128GB, and buyers have a choice of Space Gray or Silver.
