Our sister blog eBookNewser has all the details from the news conference today in San Francisco:

2:20 The publishing world’s collective jaw dropped as Jobs put up the final price point for the basic iPad: $499. Gizmodo has the rest of the price range: “And the 3G models cost an extra $130, so $629, $729 and $829 for the 3G-capable models.”

And yes, our first reaction is, “iPad my bra.”
