iPad 3G Release Date: Shipping by May 7th

For those of you who have held out from getting an iPad as you wanted to wait for the 3G version, you will be pleased to learn that Apple has updated its online store. The release date for the iPad tablet will be by may 7th, but Engadget assumes that shipping could be earlier than that.

AT&T will be ready and waiting for iPad customers to activate their $30 per month data plan, we have to stress that this is just for the U.S. market. International markets should have had the iPad by the end of April, but strong sales in the U.S. have now delayed this by one month.

The news that North America will now have both versions of the iPad before the rest of the world is a kick in the teeth to loyal Apple users. However, this minor detail will do nothing to stop the huge number of sales of the iPad.

Engadget does hold on to some hope that those in the UK and other parts of the world will see the Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi / 3G versions launched at the same time.
