Monday NewsBytes: Orange and T-Mobile to offer iPad for £200; Jolibook now on Amazon; Murdoch to launch The Daily on iPad

Orange and T-Mobile (or to put it another way, Everything Everywhere) are both set to sell the iPad on contracts at £200. That’s for the 16GB 3G version of the tablet, meaning customers can avoid the normal £529 up front charge. Though of course, they’ll pay more in the long run over the 18 month or 24 month contract they take out. The price is markedly lower than the subsidised version of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab, which weighs in at £399 on its cheapest deal (that isn’t much less than the sim-free price tag anyway).

The Jolibook netbook, boasting the Jolicloud operating system, has made its jolly way onto Amazon UK today. It’s priced at £280, and for that dough you get a 10 inch display, 1.5GHz dual-core Intel Atom N550 processor, an Intel GMA 3150 graphics solution, 1GB of memory and a 250GB hard disk. Not to mention Jolicloud 1.1, the cloud based OS.

Murdoch’s News Corporation is to launch a virtual paper on the iPad. The Daily will apparently be a tabloid style affair, but with a broadsheet tone. A week’s subscription will run to 99 cents, so isn’t likely to break the bank. Around a hundred journalists will be working on the virtual publication which will be exclusive to the Apple tablet.
