Orange and T-Mobile to subsidise iPad
Orange and T-Mobile will subsidise the iPad from December, Everything Everywhere will announce today (22 November).
The move, which is a global first, will be a coup for Everything Everywhere. The operator giant is expected to launch the subsidised model from early December in its direct channels only.
It is understood Apple’s device will cost £200 on a 24-month contract across both brands, with a website to register interest to go live shortly.
The news signals a tablet Christmas strategy for the joint venture, as both its Orange and T-Mobile brands already stock Samsung’s Galaxy Tab.
