I know what everyone is going to think – “an iPad for £200, what is the deal?”
Well news have emerged earlier this week that Orange and T-Mobile who have merged as a telecommunications company now called ‘Everything Everywhere’ will now be offering Apple’s iPad at a subsidised form.
According to Mobile News, both operators which trade as two separate networks will be able to make the iPad seem a lot more affordable as a Christmas present for everyone – remember it was voted the number one wanted Christmas present (read more here).
Both Orange and T-Mobile will be selling the 16GB 3G & Wi-Fi version of the iPad for £200 on an 18 and 24-month contract rather than having to pay £529 in retail stores for it.
Obviously this will now make the iPad cheaper than its competitor at the moment – the Galaxy Tablet. Now the Galaxy Tablet is currently offered on a sim-free contract but currently no 18 and 24-month contracts so could there be scope for a longer duration and subsidised Galaxy Tab? Could this be the new way of selling smart tablets in the UK? Will the BlackBerry PlayBook be done on contract just for business customers? Keep tuned for updates!
