iPad finally hits Europe on 28th May, pricing takes us back to PS3 launch

It’s about time Europe literally got their hands on the iPad (see what I did there?), and the 28th of this very month is when it finally makes its way over. Yes, for all you tech-heads the wait is almost over, the only problem now is choice… oh and price.

Apple’s touchy block will come in 6, count ’em 6 different models; 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB versions of both the normal and 3G range. The cheapest (and we use that term lightly) model, the normal 16GB comes in at a staggering £429, which is £5 more than what I payed for my PS3 when it launched 3 years ago. Don’t pick up your jaw just yet though; because if a rich uncle just died and you’re going for the 64GB 3G enabled edition, that’ll cost you just a pound shy of £700.

I’d carry on writing, but you’ve already had that heart attack, haven’t you? I’ll call the ambulance…
