Apple iPad Mini WiFi and 3G/4G Vodafone pricing revealed

The cellular version of the iPad Mini will be available to buy in the UK and Vodafone is the latest network to announce pricing.

Unlike the other networks, which have a wide range of tariffs, Vodafone only has one tariff for the iPad Mini, priced is £27 a month for 2GB data, paying £49 for the tablet - £50 cheaper than Orange and T-Mobile.

Prices vary tremendously between networks. Three offers the most competitive tariffs for data use, starting at £29 a month for 15GB data. If you are considering an Orange tariff with 250MB of data, then it’s better value to instead get the iPad Mini from T-Mobile - where you get more data for the same price. If you are looking for a free iPad Mini you’ll be disappointed - the majority of networks are charging for the device.

Availability varies tremendously too. The Orange website states it is ‘out of stock,’ while T-Mobile says ‘Please allow 35 days for delivery’ and Three is estimating delivery on Friday 7th December 2012. At Vodafone the tablet is in stock with delivery expected within 2-4 days. So if you are ordering as a Christmas present, make sure you check it will arrive.

Underneath we’ve summarised a selection of tariffs from the four networks to announce pricing. We’d suggest comparing tariffs carefully before investing though.
