Apple has made the iPad available in the UK for pre-order today.

The highlight-anticipated Slate PC was first announced at the beginning of the year, but only launched in the US last month.

Initially Apple also planned to make the iPad available in the UK last month, but instead delayed the launch due to unprecedented demand in the US.

Ukl purhasers can pre-order the device from Apple's dedicated webpage.

It comes with free delivery and expected to be shipped in time for May 28.

Apple is offering a Wi-Fi only device, which is available in either 16GB, 32GB or 64GB capacities. Alternatively a Wi-Fi and 3G version is also available in the same capacities.

Last week Apple revealed the Pad will cost £429 for the 16GB Wi-Fi model, while the 32GB and 64GB versions will be priced at £499 and £599 respectively.

Meanwhile, the 3G models cost from £529 for the 16GB model, £599 for 32GB and £699 for 64GB. All prices include VAT.

Apple has added a £100 premium for the addition of 3G functionality.

The news comes as both O2 and Orange announced mobile data plans specifically for iPad owners.
