The Apple iPad will be sold in AT&T stores beginning Oct. 28. All three models of the combined 3G and WiFi iPads will be available and the data plans will remain the same. Currently AT&T offers two monthly data plans for 3G iPads, $14.99 for 250MB and $25 for 2GB. If you exceed the allotted amount in one month you have the option to buy another allotment or wait until the end of the month. All iPad data plans are available without a term contract and include unlimited access to AT&T's 23,000+ domestic WiFi Hot Spots.
