    I'm one of the many Great British people looking forward to the iPad release in the UK. I also find maths fun (I don't go outside much). So I thought I'd try and predict how much the iPad is going to cost over here. I have looked at the pricing of Apple's other devices, iPods and Macs, to give me what I need to predict the iPad's price. I then worked the possible maximum and minimum prices, then giving me an average. So here they are:

    Wi-fi:
    16GB - £400
    32GB - £480
    64GB - £560

    Wi-fi + 3G:
    16GB - £505
    32GB - £585
    64GB - £665

    They seem quite realistic to me, what do y'all think? I'm going to refine it tomorrow by using a more accurate method.

    I estimate that the bottom end Wi-Fi 16 GB will cost £450, and the others scale up from there.

    Sadly, I have the feeling Apple will try squeeze us for all we're worth.

    We all thought the USD prices would be rip-offs but Apple surprised us how 'little' they charged. Hopefully they'll do the same for the rest of the globe. Remember though: these are educated estimates - nothing official.
