iPad 2 Pricing Official in UK

Earlier today, Apple confirmed that the iPad 2 was launching in the UK, along with 24 other countries this coming Friday. We heard rumors about pricing and now have confirmation that the iPad 2 is slightly cheaper than the original iPad at launch.

There are 12 variations of the iPad 2 coming to the UK and each will be priced as follows:

iPad 16GB WiFi (black/white) – £399 inc VAT
iPad 32GB WiFi (black/white) – £479 inc VAT
iPad 64GB WiFi (black/white) – £559 inc VAT

The WiFi+3G models add £100 to each price which makes them:

iPad 16GB WiFi + 3G (black/white) – £499 inc VAT
iPad 32GB WiFi + 3G (black/white) – £579 inc VAT
iPad 64GB WiFi + 3G (black/white) – £659 inc VAT

As mentioned in the news earlier today, the iPad 2 will be available to pre-order online at 1am local time with Apple stores beginning to sell them at 5PM. It is unclear why pre-orders wont get you an iPad 2 on launch date, or why the stores will not allow sales till 5PM, we guess it’s just the “Apple way”. Either way, expect them to sell quick. Within hours of the iPad 2 going on sale in the US, shipping times went from just a few days to a few weeks. If you want an iPad 2 at launch, get in line ASAP, or pre-order at 1am Friday morning.
