Orange and T-Mobile to sell the iPad on a tariff

Both parts of Everything Everywhere has announced they will soon be selling the Apple iPad tablet, at a reported subsidised price on a tariff.

T-Mobile and Orange have informed the press they will be offering the Apple iPad tablet computer at a more affordable price in the next coming months, when bought on a contract or data service plan.

No details have been unveiled yet as to what the final cost of the Apple iPad will be with Orange or T-Mobile, although it’s believed to be around the £200 price mark – below half the cost of the Apple store’s starting price for the device SIM free and unlocked.

The Apple iPad has a 9.7-inch 1024x786 resolution touch screen, which runs a similar operating system found on the iPhone handsets. The tablet computer arrives running a 1Ghz processor, with both WIFI and 3G connectivity on the model thought to be sold by Orange.

Orange currently offers microSIM only tariffs for use with the iPad, which start at £2 a day for a 200MB data allowance and escalates to a 10GB for £25 a month on a 25-month plan.

T-Mobile doesn't support the iPad in any way shape or form.

One Mobile Ring believes the subsidised iPad will be tied to a similar contract to the Orange £25 monthly iPad tariff, only with a higher monthly cost attached with that reported figure of £200 relating directly to the 16GB Apple iPad with WIFI and 3G.
