Apple has cut the price of the original iPad, after unveiling the second iteration of its monster-selling slate yesterday.
All versions of the original iPad are now £100 cheaper. Prices now start at £329 for the entry-level Wi-Fi only, 16GB edition. If you want the top of the range 64GB iteration with Wi-Fi and 3G support, you’re looking at an outlay of £579.
The price drop means that the cheapest iPad is now more affordable than the slew of Android powered challengers coming to market this year.
That includes the debut Honeycomb tablet the Motorola Xoom, which is set to go on sale at £500 in the UK. And it’s also cheaper than the BlackBerry PlayBook, which is going to set you back a cool £499.
Not sold on any of those? Well, the good news is that iFans who’d prefer to get the latest, greatest Apple slate haven’t got long to wait until they get their mitts on it. The iPad 2 lands in the UK on March 25th, when it’ll be on offer SIM free and on Orange and T-Mobile contract deals.
