The iPad will cost as little as 389 when it eventually arrives in the UK – that’s the claim being made by Geeky Gadgets which says it has received leaked launch price information from a mystery source.
The site says that the base 16GB model will cost 389, with the 32GB costing 439 and the 64GB coming in at 489.
If correct, UK consumers do indeed face a premium compared to their US counterparts. Across the pond the 16GB will cost $499 (308), the 32GB $599 (370) and the 64GB $699 (433).
The site doesn’t yet have any information concerning the top-of-the-range 3G models.
The source also claims that the first shipments will arrive in the UK in April and not in March as Apple had previously suggested.
