So in the red corner you have the new Apple iPad tablet, in the blue corner you have the Apple iPhone, and shall we see what the 3G actually does cost you for both devices.

This is what is called the iPad vs. iPhone the 3G pricing battle, Engadget has put together the full list of both devices and it is very interesting indeed. Please read the following below and you judge if you want to back the red corner (iPad) or the blue corner (iPhone).

Second is the Apple iPhone: Upfront cost will be $99/$199/$299, it does have voice calling capability unlike the iPad, it does however require a contract but can be bought on PAYG, the iPhone is not unlocked, standard SIM, Monthly cost for unlimited data $29.99, Minimum cash outlay per month $69.99, Minimum data cost over two years $720, Maximum data cost over two years $720, Minimum cash outlay over two years $1,778.76 and Maximum cash outlay over two years $3,178.76.
