ipad 2 launch

The iPad 2 will launch this week at a cheaper price point than the original model, it has been reported.

According to the Daily Telegraph, Apple's second-generation tablet will be available to buy from £399 on Friday March 25th.

This sum is £30 cheaper than the 16GB Wi-Fi iPad cost in May 2010, when the touch-screen computer first hit UK stores.

Steve Jobs, Chief Executive of Apple, said the firm was experiencing "amazing demand" for the iPad 2 in the US, where the product is already on sale.

"Customers around the world have told us they can't wait to get their hands on it," he added.

"We appreciate everyone's patience and we are working hard to build enough iPads for everyone."

The iPad 2 also goes on sale in 24 other countries this Friday, including France, Germany, Ireland and Australia.

In the UK, a number of internet service providers - including 3, Orange and T-Mobile - have announced plans to offer iPad 2 broadband deals.
