Apple iPad pre-orders start today and the UK is in the first wave of launches. You can get a 4G-enabled iPad Air 2 or iPad mini 3 from the UK section of the Apple store (they'll ship by next Friday) but in terms of carriers Three UK is the first to announce it will offer the tablet too.
There are no prices as of yet, but the official no-contract pricing starts at £500 for the Apple iPad Air 2Wi-Fi + Wireless and £420 for the iPad mini 3 Wi-Fi + Wireless. Be warned through, the new mini is a tiny, tiny upgrade (all you really get is Touch ID), so you might be better off picking up an iPad mini 2 at £340.
