Three has confirmed it will be selling the just-unveiled fourth-generation iPad and its running mate, the iPad Mini, on monthly contract deals, after the much-anticipated slates finally landed at yesterday’s Apple press call.
The magic-number-toting network has yet to reveal a concrete release date, but has pledged that it will offer the slates for sale in the “coming weeks”.
Would be buyers are also promised a “range of attractive plans that will allow [them] to connect to [Three’s] Ultrafast network, planned to cover almost 50 per cent of the UK population by the end of the year” and which offers “average speeds of 6-8 Mbps”.
This features HSPA+ 42 tech rather than the 4G standard that Three plans to launch next year.
Assuming we can trust Apple’s announcement at the tablets’ launch, UK carriers are expected to start selling the iPad Mini and iPad 4 some time in mid-November.
SIM free prices for the entry level models of the iPad Mini and iPad 4 are £269 and £399 respectively. Apple is set to start taking pre-orders for these from October 26th and will despatch them to customers from November 2nd.
