    It depends on the type of contract. If you only pay a fraction or so upfront, the contract will be over 24 month, but if you buy the whole iPad upfront and only get the contract on monthly rates, then you can get a monthly-rolling contract.

    Apple typically has the previous generation model for sale at a slight discount on their website in their Clearance section.
    Unless it's Wal-Mart....they seem to have the older models for months in the case.....

    I have NEVER heard of this for an iPad - can you provide a link to this sort of deal?
    You had your entire life to prepare for today.

    In the UK, these 24 month contracts are offered by various mobile providers.

    Thanks for the links. Those plans are nuts, treating the iPad like a phone.

    Japan has it too through SoftBank. It's called "iPad for Everyone"and you get the iPad 3G 16GB for free with a 2 year data contract.

    iPad on contract

    Japan has it too through SoftBank. It's called "iPad for Everyone"and you get the iPad 3G 16GB for free with a 2 year data contract.
    Now that sounds like a bargain. I had to buy my iPad and now pay for 3G data. Perhaps the two tiers of iPad prices those with data contracts and those without is the shape of things to come.

    Mind you the contact deals are only really available on the lower memory models. So if you want a good one, you still have to pay for it.

    This looks like some sort of cheap china copy case like you see all over eBay. You think only the major brands would get access to the dimensions first.

    With all the options that everyone's discussing, it seems as though Apple has been "floating" different features out to see how we respond. Marketing Research, so to speak.

    The higher memory mods are available, just discounted instead of free. You just pay whatever the normal price difference is from the 16GB to upgrade.
