Just been notified by Orange UK that the iPad 3G is coming soon on a greatly subsidized plan. No prices yet, but I’ve scoured the net and people are bandying the idea of £200 for the iPad plus the cost of the monthly tariff. We won’t have long to wait, apparently. Promise.
*UPDATE – 26/11*
Had another email from Orange with some prices and plans and things.
3G + Wifi – 2 year plan
16GB – £199
32GB – £249
64GB – £349
£25 a month for existing Orange customers (£27 otherwise), 1GB of anytime data, 1GB of quiet-time data, unlimited* BT OpenZone wifi access.
*By ‘unlimited’, BT mean ‘limited to 3GB usage. Go figure.
Pre-orders start Saturday 27 November. Call 0800 079 2000 if you’re interested.
