AT&T has announced that it will off a discount off any iPad if you sign up for a new two year data plan. The new offer starts on November 9th and offers $100 off any iPad with LTE. The offer doesn't just cover iPads either, any tablet that AT&T sells can qualify for the $100 discount. Tablets can be purchased at any AT&T store, online or through selected AT&T agents.
This type of buying model is very common place around the world as it makes a lot of sense for carriers to tie you in to a longer term contract. It is actually nothing new and is very similar to buying a new subsidized phone with a new contract. If you are planning on buying a new iPad and will use the data plan over the two year period, you may as well save the $100. If you will only use data on a more casual basis, it may be better to just pay for the iPad outright. At least now you have a little bit more choice.
