TUAW is reporting that prices for the UK iPad have been leaked:
According to Geeky Gadgets’ unconfirmed source, the iPad will be priced as follows when it’s launched across the pond:
- The 16GB Wi-Fi will be £389
- The 32GB Wi-Fi model will be £439
- The 64GB Wi-Fi model will be £489
It should be noted that the source didn’t have any pricing information on the Wi-Fi + 3G model, and further suggested that the UK launch date for the iPad is more likely to be in April rather than March.
Yes, if you compare the above prices to the published US prices (and convert currencies, obviously) you’ll notice that UK Apple customers once again appear to be paying significantly more than their US cousins. That’s why I budgeted £500 for a top of the line WiFi iPad when they were announced.
Seems I wasn’t too far off.
