For those of you in the UK who have yet to purchase an Apple iPad, then you should hold off for a little while – only until a new subsidized price has been finalized. There are reports that Orange and T-mobile UK could offer the tablet device for just £200 on contract.
There have been other deals for the iPad, such as giving away free games consoles by carrier rivals, but Orange and T-mobile believes that most people would rather money off the iPad instead of getting a free device that they most-probably have.
The deal is a 16GB Wi-Fi and 3G iPad on an 18 or 24-month contract, which will only cost you £200. However, no details have been given as to the monthly contract fee and data plan, but the offer will be in conjunction with Everything Everywhere, thats according to 9 to 5 Mac.
The closer we come towards the end of 2010 the more Apple is selling their iPad; we had assumed that sales would slow once the Galaxy S was released, but that is not the case. Now there are all these rumors of the iPad 2, confirming that Apple will not allow rivals to hurt their tablet market share.
