Fancy nabbing yourself a cheap as chips iPad? Well today may well be your lucky day. In what is obivously an attempt to get rid of surplus stock ahead of th eiPad 2 launch, T-Mobile are teaming up with Groupon to offer the first 1,000 members of the group buying session who commit to the deal an original iPad for just £49.
The deal runs for the entirity of the day, but is strictly limited to the 1,000 units T-Mobile have allocated for the offer. No more, and no less either. Either all 1,000 are sold or nobody gets one.
According to T-Mobile, “Customers will be emailed a web sales number, which they will then need to call and quote the Groupon voucher code. The order will then be processed by T-Mobile and the iPad dispatched to the customer.”
There is a catch however; the deal also includes a £27 a month data contract on a 24 month deal. It drops to £25 if you’re an exisiting customer, but that’s still a fair bit of moolah for on a long old contract for what is now essentially last-gen kit.
Still, if you need to get that magical tablet in your life, this is probably the cheapest you’re going to find it for a long, long time.
