According to source below, minimum ad budged for Appl'es iAd Platform is $1.000.000 in the U.S and £600.000 in the U.K.
So unless you are a very big company and wan't to target Apple products only prices are way to high.

Well, Apple made headlines again! An iPhone developer made $1,400 from adverts on his free flashlight app for iPhone 4 in it's first day! Here is the proof
It is of course no where near sustainable and novelty of iAd plays big role in this income but still $1,400 in one day is huge money to make from adverts! I know tens of mobile web developers that would be happy with $5 income a day from their mobile site!
iAd gives %60 of income from an advert to the developer so from a $2.00 CPC advert publisher gets $1.2. On the other side you earn between $0.01 - $0.07 per click from other mobile advertising companies such as Admob, Inmobi, Mojiva, Buzzcity, AdModa.
As much as I am against this App hype and Apple's Walled garden approach. I can't help my self but envy!
