Selling an old mobile could get you the iPad
13 May 2010 — 3:59 PM
The Apple iPad is likely to sell well in the UK despite higher prices, it has been suggested.
A recent report in the Times stated UK consumers will have to pay around £100 more than US consumers for the Apple device.
However, experts have stated this may not stop people from buying it and they could opt to sell an old mobile phone with Envirofone for cash to put towards it.
James Holland, editor at Electricpig.co.uk, said: "Gadget fans in the UK almost always seem to be stung by higher prices, although at times it's simply because they haven't factored in US sales tax or VAT on this side of the pond."
He added the iPad is a little pricier over here but with Apple's solid fan base it is unlikely this would prove harmful to sales.
A spokesperson for Apple told the Times that prices were affected by factors including currency exchange rates, local import laws, business practices, taxes and the cost of doing business influences.
