Apple iPad 2 to be Cheaper than Original in UK
This Friday, the iPad 2 device from Apple is set to be launched in the UK and it is now thought that the device will actually cost less than the original version did when it was released a year ago. On Tuesday, there was a press release distributed that suggested a retail price of £399 for the iPad 2 device, including VAT. If this is the case, this will mean that the iPad 2 will actually go on sale for £30 less than the original iPad model cost around a year ago.
Apple have also announced in the press release that the iPad 2 will actually be delayed in the UK by half a day. This means that instead of going on sale at 9am, it will actually go on sale at 5pm, although it is currently unknown why this is.
The 16GB Wi-Fi version of the iPad 2 is set to be priced at £399 if the press release information is correct with the 32GB being priced at £479 and the 64GB version being priced at £559.
Any customer that is looking to get their hands on a 3G version of the iPad 2 will be looking at spending a minimum of £499 for the 16GB model, £579 for the 32GB model or £659 for the 64GB model.
Apple are already estimated to have sold half a million of the devices during the release in the US and it is expected to see a similar success rate in the UK.
