You may have heard a few UK carriers have been thinking about the possibility to offer subsidized iPads in the WiFi + 3G flavor to combine them with a monthly data plan. A few minutes ago Orange UK announced its plans, with pre-orders starting later today.
As for the iPads, the prices are:
- iPad 16GB £199.00
- iPad 32GB £249.00
- iPad 64GB £349.00
Which, approximately, are $310 for the 16GB model, $390 for the 32GB one, $620 for the 64GB model. You'll have to subscribe to a 2-year contract, though, that, at £27 ($42) per month, gives you 1GB anytime data usage, 1GB quiet time data (midnight to 4PM according to Orange) and 3GB BT Openzone WiFi.
The plans are available here. Expect T-Mobile and Three to follow in the next weeks with their iPad offers.
