AT&T will be selling the 3G model at the standard price points of $629 for the 16GB version, $729 for the 32GB version, and $829 for the 64GB version. Because the iPad 3G service provided by AT&T is prepaid with no contract, there is no discount for purchasing the device directly from AT&T.
While the 3G iPad is still a GSM device, Verizon Wireless plans to offer bundles containing the Wi-Fi iPad together with a Novatel Mi-Fi 3G router, which will provide users with the same mobile connectivity that AT&T iPad users currently enjoy. Price points will match the 3G model but will include the Novatel Mi-Fi router and a special service plan offering 1GB of data transfer for $20 per month ($20 per 1GB overage), 3GB for $35 or 5GB for $50 (both $10 per 1GB overage). Buyers will have to sign a service agreement, however they will not be charged a termination fee for canceling service at any time.
No word yet on whether a contract will be required to sign up for Mi-Fi service.

Verizon will also be selling the Wi-Fi iPad by itself without the Mi-Fi and associated service plan at the same price points Apple currently charges, $499 for the 16GB model, $599 for the 32GB model, and $699 for the 64GB model.
This retail store cooperation between Verizon and Apple may be a sign of things to come for the iPad. The iPad is due for a refresh sometime in early 2011, and given the rumors about the Verizon iPhone, a CDMA iPad model is a real possibility.
