With the launch coming soon, it was surprising that we had yet to hear from the UK carriers about which ones would be carrying the brand new iPad Air and Retina iPad mini. Fortunately today, some of the confusion, or lack of knowledge about the launch, was cleared up. Well, at least a little. Today, Three became the first carrier in the UK to officially announce that it will be carrying the new tablets when they launch in November. The data plans for the carrier will start at £7.50 a month with 1GB of data and go up to £25 for a whopping 15GB of data per month. If you’re interested in learning more about Three’s announcement be sure to check out the full press release below. Will you be buying an iPad from Three when the devices launch on November 1st?

Three to Offer iPad Air in UK on November 1, 2013
UK, London – October 29, 2013 -Three today announced that it will offer iPad Air with Wi-Fi + Cellular in UK on Friday, November 1, and iPad mini with Retina display with Wi-Fi + Cellular later in November. Three will offer these new iPads with a range of attractive data plans that will allow customers to connect to its fast DC-HSDPA+ 3G network and its 4G network that will be available at no extra cost, in December.
iPad Air features a stunning 9.7-inch Retina display in a new thinner and lighter design. Precision-engineered to weigh just one pound, iPad Air is 20 percent thinner and 28 percent lighter than the fourth generation iPad, and with a narrower bezel, the borders of iPad Air are dramatically thinner-making content even more immersive. iPad mini with Retina display brings all the pixels from the 9.7-inch iPad to its 7.9-inch screen, delivering razor sharp text and detail in the same amazingly thin and light design. The new iPads feature the powerful and power-efficient Apple-designed A7 chip with 64-bit desktop-class architecture, ultrafast wireless with faster built-in Wi-Fi and expanded LTE cellular connectivity, and the newly-designed iOS 7 featuring hundreds of great new features.
Customers can buy iPad Air with Wi-Fi + Cellular at all Three retail shops, online or by calling 0800 358 8460, beginning November, 1. For complete details on pricing and pre-registration, please visit www.three.co.uk.
