Currys Drops £20 Off Apple iPad 2 Tablet Price

Currys has quietly cut the price of the Apple iPad 2 16GB Wi-Fi from £399 to £379, a discount that can only be activated using the code "COMP5", which gives a five per cent discount.

Apple is notoriously difficult when it comes to allowing high street partners to reduce recommended retail prices but Currys has managed to do it sneakily.

What's more, the discount is also applicable on other Apple iPad 2 tablets, Wi-Fi and 3G models inclusive; plus you can also get the refurbished version of that same iPad 2 for even cheaper.

The Apple iPad 2 is by far the best selling tablet on the market, accounting for almost three quarters of devices sold, and is the benchmark by which all others have been judged.

The new iOS 5 brings some welcome features to the iPad 2 and although Siri is not currently available for the tablet, it is likely to arrive soon enough (probably with the next version update).

Oh and by the way, you can still enroll in our competition to win an iPhone 4S by answering a very simple question before the 21st of October (ed : that's tomorrow!). Terms and conditions as well as the other details are here.
