APPLE IPAD 2 WILL COST LESS THAN IPAD 1 IN THE UK

The iPad 2 will go on sale in the UK on Friday for less than the launch price of its predecessor, Apple has confirmed.

The iPad 2 will go on sale in Britain at 5pm on Friday with prices starting at £399 for the 16GB wifi model - £30 less than the launch price for the same model of the original iPad last year.

The most expensive iPad 2, the 64GB wifi and 3G model, will cost £659 - £40 less than the same model of the original iPad.

Despite claims that the iPad 2 launch might be delayed because of shortages, Apple said the tablet computer will go on sale in 25 countries on Friday, including Australia, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy and Spain.

Apple also said that the iPad 2 would be available in Hong Kong, Korea and Singapore in April.

Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO, said: “We’re experiencing amazing demand for iPad 2 in the US, and customers around the world have told us they can’t wait to get their hands on it. We appreciate everyone’s patience and we are working hard to build enough iPads for everyone."

The iPad 2, which was announced earlier this month in San Francisco and launched in the US on March 11, has a faster processor than the first generation model, as well as front and rear facing cameras for video calling. The new version is also slimmer and lighter than its predecessor.

Analysts estimate that Apple sold between 400,000 and 500,000 iPad 2s in the first weekend on sale in the US. Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster said that 70 per cent of iPad 2s were sold to buyers who had not bought the first version.
