After a long wait, at 11pm on Friday Night Apple announced that the iPad will finally reach Australian shores on May 28.

Friday May 28 will be a big day for Apple stores in Australia, as well as courier drivers across the country.  Pre-Orders start on May 10, so there’s your first ‘to-do’ item for Monday morning.

 (More details and pricing press ‘continue reading’)

Pricing is slightly better than I expected.

WiFi Only Models:
16GB $629
32GB $759
64GB $879
WiFi + 3G Models:
16GB $799
32GB $928
64GB $1049

It’s been a long wait for Australians, and now, we’ll finally get to see just how game changing the iPad might be.

Our big wait now is for information on what Telstra, Optus and Vodafone will charge for the 3G coverage, and will they require contracts or follow the AT&T + Apple US model of no contracts.

More details on the Mobile Plans as they are announced.

    OH really. Ripped off. I can get two fully internet functioning notebooks for the price of a cheaper Apple table that doesn't require internet replacement apps because it's limited internet experience. Talk about a closed system, I can't even upgrade the bloody hard drive and the thing only just allows USB.
