Orange iPad contract deals detailed

£199 for iPad on contract, but is it really worth it?

Deals unveiled by Orange, but is monthly cost too much?

Orange has officially pulled the wrappers off of its iPad contracts and they’re pretty much just as we expected. The 16GB Wi-Fi + 3G model will set you back £199 on a two year deal, down from £529 SIM-free.

Those after more storage can get the 32GB model for £249 and the 64GB for £299. So, how much do you need to pay every month once you’ve stumped up your initial fee? New punters will need to find £27 a month, while existing Orange customers get a cut price £25 deal.

For that you get 1GB of anytime data a month 1GB of data for use between 4pm and midnight and free access to BT Openzone’s Wi-Fi hotspots. That seems a tad miserly considering Three’s current SIM deals for the iPad tout a massive 10GB of data for just £15 a month. That, admittedly, is part of a SIM-only package. Three is planning to unveil pricing for its contract-shackled iPads soon.

You can register your interest with Orange now. But with other networks yet to unveil their exact price plans, we’d hold fire before busting out your credit card.

Is Orange asking too much? Or is this the price you pay for having the tastiest tablet in town? Tell us what you think on Facebook and Twitter.
