Yep, it seems both of the big carriers are getting the new iPad on the same day now with the same prices starting at $529.99. Not sure how that’s going to work though as the Apple site lists them as not being available for another 2-3 weeks, but the PR says you’ll be able to actually buy them in Verizon and AT&T stores on Friday the 16th. I don’t know….
