Update: The prices have been announced. First of all, there is NO contract. You may cancel your AT&T plans anytime.
16GB iPad with Wi-Fi is priced at $499. The 32Gb and 64Gb come priced at $599 and $699. On top of this is $130 for 3G. So, the most expensive iPad will be the 64GB device with 3G : $829

The Apple Tablet is most likely to be priced at around $500-$600 with contract and $999 without one. This comes from Media Markt which is among the biggest electronics store in Germany; much like the Best Buy is to US.
An inadvertent posting on the company’s twitter account which has since then been deleted reads
Apple iPad – Ab 01. Marz bei Ihrem Media Markt fur nur 499,- Euro im T-Mobile Complete L Vertrag (sonst 899,- Euro)
An interesting confirmation is that the device will in fact be called the iPad. Another is an indication that the device will go on sale from March 1; something that was speculated to be impossible because of component supply shortage.
The speculation appears to be strongly likely considering the credibility of the source. What do you make of this? Is $600 with contract what you had hoped for? Tell us in the comments.[via MacRumors]
