[Update] Orange UK Planning to Subsidize iPads. #apple #ipad


Details are pretty slim right now, but Orange UK just announced that they are planning to subsidize Apple iPads to customers who subscribe to a monthly data plan. For users who were looking to pick up an iPad 3G + WiFi but didn’t have the necessary cash to drop up front may find the new subsidized model a more worthwhile option. Of course, you’ll probably be locked into a multi-year plan. But such speculation is just that at this point — no pricing, data allotment, or contract length are yet available. You’ll know when we know.


Orange has officially come forward with their subsidized iPad offerings. Starting later today, interested parties can snag the 16GB version for £199 ($312) , the 32GB iPad for £249 ($391), and the 64GB iPad for £349 ($626). In order to qualify for the subsidized pricing, customers will need to subscribe to a data plan costing £27 ($42)/month. Said plan will give you 1GB of peak data, 1GB of off-peak (midnight-4pm) data, and 3GB of BT Access Open Zone Wifi per month as well. Slightly odd to see the cap on data over WiFi, but whatever. We’ll take what we can get, especially when that means a cheaper up front cost for an iPad.

Any UK readers going to bite?
