Apple iPad to go on sale in the UK in late April

 

Apple’s iPad will go on sale in the UK in late April, slightly later than anticipated, the manufacturer confirmed today (5 March).

UK consumers will be able to buy both the Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi and 3G versions of the device, which was originally set for late March/early April launch.

Apple is understood to be in talks with the operators about ranging the device, Orange thought to be a likely frontrunner because of its previous relationship with the manufacturer.

US customers will be able to buy the Wi-Fi only model on April 3, with the Wi-Fi and 3G model available later in April.

Apple CEO, Steve Jobs, said: ‘The iPad is something completely new. We’re excited for customers to get their hands on this magical and revolutionary product and connect with their apps and content in a more intimate, intuitive and fun way than ever before.’

The iPad has a 10-inch touch-screen, no keyboard and will allow users to surf the web, watch TV programmes and read digitised magazines and newspapers.

Apple has also launched an ebook store – the iBookstore – in a bid to take on Amazon and Sony by allowing ebook downloads to the device.

"no keyboard"Does it not have an onscreen virtual keyboard? That counts, as it also supports iWork.
