Three pledges cut-price iPads for Crimble
Three is to follow T-Mobile and Orange , and make available cut-price iPads subsidised by airtime contracts.
Neither Orange nor T-Mobile have said what the subsidised price of their iPads will be, though it has been claimed 3G-enabled iPads will be sold for as little as £200 - £329 off the list price.
Likewise, Three did not say today what the extent of its own subsidy will be.
The operators will fund the price cuts by selling 18-month and two-year contracts on the back of them.
Right now, these and other carriers simply provide iPad-friendly micro Sim cards on a pay-as-you-go or on one-month contract.
The big question for iPad 3G users: will you use the cellular data enough to warrant taking the hit on the monthly data bill in return for cheaper hardware? ®
