6. The 3G version costs an extra 0 and is locked to AT&T. There are two options 250MB for .99 a month or 2GB for a month. IT is a monthly contract which is very good because nobody wants to be signed up to a 12-18 month contract.
6. More Than 1 million apps were downloaded to iPads on the first day.
7. You can sync your iPod touch or iPhone with your iPad. Personally I do not think this is very useful because I can not see why somebody would get an iPad if they had an iPod touch or an iPhone
