Orange and T-Mobile are to cut the cost of Apple’s iPad tablet as part of new contract deals, it has been revealed today.
The Times are reporting that the tablet may fall to as little £200, though so far both companies are keeping tight-lipped on the specifics of the deal.
The two mobile firms (now joint under the umbrella banner of Everything Everywhere) have however announced that the iPad price will indeed drop very low thanks to subsidised 18 month or 2 year contract deals.
While the exact pricing is yet to be confirmed, both Orange and T-Mobile have said in a statement that they “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.”
So, the iPad officially just got at least a little more affordable. How much more affordable remains to be seen, but we’ll keep you posted once the news reaches us.
