Whilst we were lucky enough to get our hands on the apple iPad 2 in the UK a few weeks before it was released here there is still a massive rush for everyone to get their hands on one! They don’t go on sale until 5pm today, so good luck to all the people wanting one.
CEO of Apple, Steve Jobs, noted: “We’re experiencing amazing demand for iPad 2 in the US, and customers around the world have told us they can’t wait to get their hands on it. We appreciate everyone’s patience and we are working hard to build enough iPads for everyone.”
And so onto the pricing. It appears Apple is firing on all cylinders here, with the asking price actually being less than the original iPad was when it came out almost a year ago. A clever move when it comes to encouraging new adopters.
The basic original 16GB iPad with wi-fi was £429, and the same iPad 2 model is £399. If you want 32GB of memory, that’ll cost £479, and then £559 for the 64GB model with wi-fi.
Those who want 3G will pay £100 more down the line for the privilege, so pricing will start at £499. A poly smart cover will be £35, and a leather one £59.
