Not every carrier has those yet, but AT&T and Verizon do, rewarding those lucky customers. It also has new versions of apps like Garage Band.
Consumers will be able to get their hands on the new device starting March 16th, and the prices are the same as for the iPad 2 — $499 for the base 16-gigabyte version, $599 for 32GB and $699 for the 64GB. If you want the 4G wireless, that’s an additional $130.
