Subsidy Deal Set Out For Apple iPad

Mon 29 Nov, 2010 // Firstnumber Team

A subsidy deal has been created by Telecomm giants Orange and T-Mobile in a bid to attract more customers to use the Apple iPad under a monthly contract.

Despite hundreds of thousands of the devices being sold, Orange and Everything Everywhere – an upcoming joint venture between T-mobile and Orange – have begun to look at ways in which the Apple gadget could be subsidised in order to make it more affordable when combined with a data service plan.

Apple iPad subsidy deal in time for Christmas

With Christmas shoppers already hitting the high street in their droves, sales of the iPad are expected to rise although Orange intend to sweeten the deal by selling the device in Europe for around £235 (279 Euros); a saving of over £150 for a device which is not sold with a mobile contract.

iPads on sale in European Orange stores will be sold with a mobile and data service plan, contracted to last over 18 months.
