    iPad Release Date & Pricing for UK Confirmed!

    Apple confirms iPad UK launch on May 28‎

    A little bit more than what I was possibly willing to pay for the entry level, although I haven't quite made my mind up yet either way.

    So who else is going to be getting one?

    I know someone going to the States shortly so it would work out cheaper to get them to pick one up. I'll probably wait until the HandHeld Learning Conference though when I should be picking up for use by the team.

    600 quid for a giant turd. Amazing what people will purchase these days.

    I was expecting from about 350 - 500, but that's kinda ridiculous.

    I have the 32 bit version and I love it.

    I can certainly see some fantastic educational benefits of students using these as the designated PLD (Personal Learning Devices) in projects such as BSF etc.

    They certainly pack a lot of potential and not just an expensive e-book reader like most people have said.

    Mattx reminds me of the saying....

    You can't polish a t3%d, but stick an apple logo on it and people will pay hundreds for it!

    Its actually only around 50 a unit more than in the USA - the rest is VAT, and I'd imagine that some of that 50 is customs/import duty.

    I forgot to add the rip-off extra 25% for UK customers!
