Apple iPad pre-orders are now live across a number of countries around the world including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the UK. Prices in the UK have already been revealed but we also now have an idea on pricing for those wishing to purchase the iPad on contract.
Three mobile operators will release the iPad including Orange, O2 and Vodafone. The latter seems quite steep, offering at £10 per month for 250MB of data or £25 per month for 5GB of data.
Orange offers a simple “pay monthly for what you use” tariff at 5p per megabyte. Others include a £2 daily deal for a 200MB allowance, £7.50 weekly deal for 1GB and two monthly plans: £15 for 3GB or £25 for 10GB (these include free Wi-Fi access at BT Openzone hotspots).
Lastly, O2 has a deal for £2 for 500MB, £10 per month for 1GB or £15 per month for 3GB. The Apple iPad will start shipping on May 28.
