"AT&T* and Apple® today announced that all three iPadTM Wi-Fi + 3G models will be available at more than 2,200 AT&T Stores starting Thursday, October 28. AT&T will offer customers 3G pre-paid data plans for iPad, complete with Apple's easy on-device activation and management. All iPad data plans are available without a term contract and include unlimited access to AT&T's 23,000+ domestic Wi-Fi Hot Spots."
Target is selling the iPad now, while Wal-Mart is set to begin selling the iPad starting October 15th. Sam's Club will also be selling it in the near future, so I guess it was just logical that AT&T get in the mix. But that is not all. Verizon is also set to begin selling the Wi-Fi version of the iPad at the end of October, with an optional bundle that includes the MiFi Hotspot for an extra $130.00 USD. Since you can't use the iPad 3G on the Verizon network, this is a good option (I do the same thing with my Wi-Fi only iPad) and it turns out the price difference is what you would pay for a 3G version of an iPad.
