UK networks announce Apple iPad data deals

Apple is now taking orders for the iPad, but that's only half the tale if you want to use it out and about. The other half of the equation is UK network data deals, all of which have been revealed today.

Like the iPhone, Orange, Vodafone and O2 have the right to sell packages. Orange was first out of the blocks, offering a daily £2 deal (200MB use), weekly use of 1GB for 7 days days for £7.50 or longer term £15 and £25 monthly deals, which offers 3GB and 10GB data respectively, the latter two deals also throwing in unlimited BT Openzone Wi-Fi.

Not a fan of Orange? Well, a day with O2 is also £2, but it is offering up to 500MB of data. 1GB and 3GB 30-day contract deals are also on offer, selling for £10 and £15 per month and with a cancel right with 24 hours of notice. All of those tariffs include unlimited access to BT Openzone and The Cloud Wi-Fi hotspots too. Vodafone has just two packages, 250MB a month for £10 or for heavier users, 5GB for £25.

You can pre-order those deals now, just like the iPad itself, which went on pre-order in the UK this morning. If you want one, be prepared to pay £429, £499 and £599 for the 16GB, 32GB and 64GB Wi-Fi models, with 3G models adding another £100 to each size variant. You can order now from the Apple website.
