iPad pricing has gone live – and even if the economy goes back into a tailspin, as it most probably will given today’s election result, you’ll probably be able to afford one. You’ll be able to pre-order online at the UK Apple Store from the 10th of May, with devices shipping from the 28th.

The most basic model will be £429 including VAT. The US price is $499 which is about £341 before tax. Add VAT on top, it translates to £400 at current exchange rates. Given the traditional inquity between US and UK pricing, we’ve got off fairly lightly. In fact, that extra £30 would just about pay for shipping from the States, if you were to buy your iPad on the grey market. Here’s the full breakdown, direct from Apple: 
 “iPad is available in the UK for a suggested retail price of £429 (inc. VAT) for 16GB, £499 (inc. VAT) for 32GB, £599 (inc. VAT) for 64GB for Wi-Fi models and £529 (inc. VAT) for 16GB, £599 (inc. VAT) for 32GB and £699 (inc. VAT) for 64GB for Wi-Fi + 3G models.”
