UK carriers discounting the iPad, an indication that the next-gen Apple tab is coming soon?

UK price of the iPad discounted, an indication that the next-gen iPad is coming soon?
Two major British carriers - T-Mobile UK and Orange - have slashed the price of the Apple iPad, thus causing wild rumours this is an indication we are to see the next-gen iPad soon.

Here are the hard facts - Orange has dropped the price of the iPad for both existing and new customers to $160 (£99). Previously, the Apple tablet costed Orange subscribers $320 (£199.99), while for new customers the price was $370 (£229.99).

T-Mobile UK has the same offer for its subscribers, but new customers don't qualify for this discount.

And here are the not so hard facts - according to TechRadar, this may be an indication that the iPad 2 is coming very soon, so these two British carriers are discounting the price of the original iPad before they receive the new stock.

Opposite rumours claim that the next-generation iPad is actually delayed, and will appear in June 2011.

But let's be positive - even if this is not an indication that the next-gen version of the Apple tablet is coming soon, at least it's a nice discount.
