Verizon & AT&T iPad 2: Plan Prices Shown What Will You Choose?

After months of rumor and what if’s, Apple’s iPad 2 finally announced itself to the world. Although the first generation was greeted with much praise, this time round the story is a little different. Consumers seem to be mixed in their views with relation to what features were announced. If we take out FaceTime, PhotoBooth, Smart Cover and the 2 new cameras, we are still wondering why Retina Display and USB outlets were possibly left out?

But putting this to one side, our concentration must be focused on this coming Friday 11th March, when the new iPad 2 will be available to purchase online from 12.01 AM PT, with in-store purchases being available from 5 PM on the same day. So how does that leave you with a data plan and pricing structure. Over at Phones Review via Macrumors, a Verizon and AT&T price chart has been spotted.

From AllThingsD who initially brought the plan to our attention (see below), it starts off by clearly stating AT&T prices. Prepaid on AT&T will equal that of the first generation iPad with 250MB at a cost of $14.99 and 2 GB for $25. If as reported, you run out of data, you purely pay again, there is also the option of post-paid that will charge overage at a set amount, totalling $10 per 1GB.

In terms of AT&T’s competitor the big red Verizon, the iPad 2 data plan is listed as 1GB at $20 a month, the bigger 3GB for $35, 5GB for $50 and 10GB for $80. Option overages for the listed 1GB model will be $20 with the rest being $10.

During the next few days, we will be hearing more about the iPad 2 and what both carriers will be offering to outdo one another. Will it be AT&T’s 3G speed and overseas connectivity that will be used to grab the consumers attention, or maybe Verizon’s reliable network?

Tell us are you going to pick up an iPad 2, if so will it be online or in-store? Which carrier impresses you the most?
