T-Mobile UK reveals subsidized iPad 2 prices

updated 10:30 am EDT, Thu March 24, 2011

First UK carrier to push out details

T-Mobile's UK division has officially announced some of its subsidized pricing for the iPad 2, which launches in the region tomorrow. At a base level a 16GB 3G model will cost 199 for existing customers, or 229 for new ones. In either case buyers will be tied to a two-year data plan, set at 25 a month for existing subscribers or 27 otherwise. This includes 1GB of regular data use per month plus an extra gigabyte between midnight and 10AM.

The carrier says it will be opening up phone and online orders starting at 5PM on Friday. T-Mobile is the first 3G provider in the UK to announce subsidized iPad 2 pricing; others should follow shortly. 3, O2, Orange and Vodafone will also be supporting the tablet locally.

When not tied to a contract, a 3G iPad 2 should cost 499 for 16GB, 579 for 32GB or 659 for 64GB. Wi-Fi models are being priced at 399, 479 and 559, respectively. The 3G hardware may be irrelevant for some shoppers, as iOS 4.3 allows an iPhone to tether with an iPad.
