UK iPad 2 to cost under £400
Will go on sale on Friday, Apple insists
We're getting the iPad 2 a little more cheaply than last time.
Apple today re-iterated that the second version of its hugely popular tablet will go on sale on Friday, 25 March.
This time round, the basic, Wi-Fi only model with 16GB of storage will retail for £399, down from £429.
The 32GB version will cost £479, the 64GB £559. Chuck in 3G connectivity and GPS, and you'll pay an extra £100, as before.
Getting the iPad 2 out at below the £400 mark - if only by a pound - is a psychological barrier overcome. It'll be harder for potential punters to argue the gadget is too expensive, and it'll turn many folk who thought £429 too much from passers-by into purchasers.
Assuming, of course, that Apple has enough of the things to sell. ®
But they're shit.
...is just beyond your grasp...
Now that's what I call troll baiting!
Strange as it sounds, nothing makes you money like selling stuff. If you really honestly think that by holding back stock, they will sell more, than you are deluded. Plain and simple.
Read it and weep
Let me see, £600 for a Xoom, £500 for a Tab, or £399 for an iPad2?
You would have to have a severe case of anti-apple-itis to even consider a different tablet.
