peteflynn: An interesting note: in this morning's Dom Post business section they ran a small article on teh iPad. They stated it will be available in March and the base model will be $705.
Glib currency conversion by a johnny-no-stars reporter or inside info do you think?
I would bet the former. I remember pundits betting on iphone pricing at th e$800-900 mark, and freaked out when it hit at $1200-$1300.
It will be $800-900 for the basic, and Apple will offer it online for $50 less than retailers just like the 3GS.
