Have you been waiting eagerly for the iPad to be available outside the U.S.? If so, then today is your day: Apple announced on Friday that it will make the iPad available in nine more countries this summer, as well as dishing on the prices for pre-ordering in the U.K.
As we all know, the UK usually ends up getting stung when it becomes to the price of consumer electronics. A recent report by VoucherCodes.co.uk has compared the cost of major Apple products (iPods/iPhones) and have discovered that the UK pays up to 21% more for our electronic products than our american counterparts.
The 16GB Wi-Fi iPad model was recently launched in the US costing $499, leaving we brits with a £399 price tag (including the 20% mark up). That said, Apple have not yet released their pricing information and will only do so on the 10th May 2010, when it officially releases it for the UK.
