iPad 2 UK Release: Confirmed on Orange and T Mobile

Orange and T Mobile, aka, Everything Everywhere, have confirmed they will be carrying the iPad 2 in the UK, with the iPad 2 release set for 25 March.

Orange and T Mobile were the lead operators for the first iPad and T3 has strong reason to believe that it will offer the same subsidised price plan for iPad 2.

The news that Everything Everywhere will carry the iPad 2 was confirmed by a company spokesperson, just moments after Apple unveiled the iPad 2 at a packed media event in San Francisco.

The iPad 2, which will be available in both black and white colour options, will feature a number of the widely expected hardware additions.

iPad 2 Spec

Off the bat the front and rear facing cameras that were seemingly a given are now official with a rear-mounted camera with 720p HD video recording capabilities to be joined by a VGA front-mounted offering. Also widely expected, the new iPad will support Apple’s FaceTime video calling technology that through the front-facing camera will allow users to communicate face-to-face with other iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and Mac owners

Giving the iPad 2 a hefty speed boost the second-generation Apple tablet will come equipped with the all new Apple A5 processor, a 1GHz dual-core processor that will after twice the CPU power and nine times faster graphics than the original iPad whilst not adding additional drain to the device’s 10 hour battery life.

iPad 2 UK Price

Although no details of network prices have yet been released, the iPad 2 UK prices for the device only are set to remain the same as the current iPad and it's highly likely that Everything Everywhere will follow the subsidised pricing model we saw for the iPad.

Launching complete with the newly announced iOS 4.3 that will see the return of the physical rotation lock button, the iPad 2 will attempt to emulate the market dominating success of its predecessor, a success that saw the original iPad control more than 90 percent of the tablet market and caused Steve Jobs to describe other brands tablets and 2011 as the “Year of the copycats.”
