Apple iPad and 3UK

November 25th, 2010 Tags: , , , ,

It’s not a lot of information to start with, but 3UK have just released the following statement:

Three UK today announced it will offer new purchase options for iPad users, including more affordable prices when purchased with a data service plan, for iPad with Wi-Fi + 3G models in the coming months. iPad allows users to connect with their apps and content in a more intimate, intuitive and fun way than ever before. Users can browse the web, read and send email, enjoy and share photos, watch HD videos, listen to music, play games, read ebooks and much more, all using iPad’s revolutionary Multi-Touch user interface.

Although you’ve been able to get iPad data SIM contracts for some while, it’s nice to see 3UK being able to sell the hardware too.  I’m hearing rumours that it’s likely the iPad will be available from other networks too (Orange and T-Mobile have been mentioned), and that it will be a subsidised price (similar to most phone contracts), which may bring the Apple iPad into the reach of many more people as a special Christmas present…
