Apple announced a couple of days ago the price for its iPad tablet device for the UK, which we mentioned in a recent post. The makers of the iPhone will allow customers to pre-order their iPad from tomorrow, Monday 10th May — but a number of consumers were unhappy when they learned what the pricing was.
The UK will not be the only international country able to pre-order the iPad from tomorrow, others include: Canada, Germany, Japan, France, Spain, Australia and many more. Apple is certainly on to a good thing with the iPad tablet device as more than one million units have now been sold — these numbers will increase even more once come tomorrow.
The prices for the Apple iPad in the UK are as follows:
- (Wi-Fi only models)
- 16GB: £429
- 32GB: £499
- 64GB: £599
- (Wi-Fi and 3G models)
- 16GB: £529
- 32GB: £599
- 64GB: £699
It came as no surprise that these iPads were going to be more expensive than their U.S. counterparts — but the prices still seem a little cheaper than what we first expected. When news first broke of the iPad back in January we assumed that the Apple would offer the basic iPad for £499 in the UK. At least there is a £70 saving there.
