Apple iPad 2 AT&T, Verizon Plans and Release Time

I’m pretty sure by now most of the iOS faithful out there know that the Apple iPad 2 will go on sale as of the 11th of this month, that’s this Friday at 12.01AM Pacific Time, but that is for online purchases. If you prefer to pick up the second-generation Apple iPad in store you can do so as of 5PM the same day.

But how much will an Apple iPad 2 monthly plan with either Verizon or AT&T cost the customer? Well according to an article over on Macrumors, the guys over at AllThingsD have come up with a handy chart that gives the plan prices for both AT&T and Verizon.

The plan chart goes like this…prepaid on AT&T is the same as the iPad 1 with 250MB for $14.99 and 2GB for $25 and if you run out of data you pay again. There is now a post-paid option that charges overage at a set amount, which is $10 per 1GB.

When it comes to Verizon the Apple iPad 2 data plans go like this…1GB for $20 a month – 3GB for $30 – 5GB for $50 – 10GB for $80, and other than the 1GB option overages will be charged at $10 per 1GB while the 1GB for $20 option overages are charged at $20 per 1GB.

It is expected that there will be long lines at Apple stores when you want to pick up the Apple iPad 2 in store rather than purchase on line, but if you want the iOS tablet before the following week you’ll need to brave those line.

So who of our readers is going to order the Apple iPad 2 on line and who’s going to hit their local Apple store early in order to purchase?

    I will be ordering the Ipad 2 online, I live in the eastern time zone so I will be up at 3:00 am….just unsure about the smart cover.

  2. I hope iPad 2 can live up to all expectations. Motorola Xoom is now starting build-up supporters. Usually, I am against when 2nd generation devices are being released while their predecessor had just been released less than a year ago. But this is a different case; Motorola is slowly killing the interest of the people to iPad 2. Let’s see what Steve Jobs will do about this problem.

  3. At least in the U.S., the iPad 2 will be on sale not only at Apple's stores, but at Best Buy, Target, Walmart, AT&T, Verizon and possibly Sam's Club as well. That's most likely the reason why Apple didn't allow advance orders–they needed to have sufficient stock to supply all those outlets on Friday. The market expectation is that there may be lines, but the iPad 2 will be available in so many places that none of the lines will be huge.

    Also, at least in the U.S., the Xoom has had no effect on market interest in the iPad 2. If anything, given the fact that only one Xoom model is available, it's priced about as much as the most expensive iPad 2. and it's only sold at retail in Best Buy and Verizon stores, interest in the Xoom has decreased considerably since the iPad 2 announcement.

  4. I am happy to see that iPad 2 really met the expectations in most aspects. The thin form factor and lightweightness is a killer feature. Apple knows how to design cool gadgets which people would like to buy instead a Xoom tablet, for example. Until now, all performance reviews are also very positive.
