Apple iPad Ships April 3 2010 [news.cnet.com]
Eager for the Apple iPad? You'll finally be able to get your hands on the tablet in the U.S. starting Saturday, April 3.

Apple announced Friday that the Wi-Fi version of the iPad will launch in the United States on that date, followed by the Wi-Fi + 3G edition later in the month. Additionally, both versions will hit Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland, and the U.K. in late April.

Starting March 12, consumers can preorder both the Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi + 3G models from Apple's online store or reserve a Wi-Fi version to pick up on April 3 at any Apple retail store.

An iPad would be a major lifestyle change for me. Today was "recycling day" at my house, so before going to the office I hauled two boxes of newspapers and magazines to the curb.

Every day I get the NYT and the local newspaper. I subscribe to The New Yorker and about five monthly magazines, all of which will soon have an iPad-ish web site if they do not already.

The cost benefits are real. I would likely save, I estimate, about $300 a year in subscriptions after paying for the iPad, less if the journals put up a paywall, but still a savings.

And, the newspapers' news would be more up-to-date; not to mention the magazines. (The New Yorker hits the newsstand about four days before I get it. And, having it first has value to me.)

Still, I once got The Wall Street Journal in print, but I went online in the early days. It was a very different experience. (I quit even looking at WSJ last year; they are not who they were--worse than useless now; a time waste.)

Conclusion: I don't know. Maybe...
