Networks line up for iPad deal

Network providers will meet Apple executives this week to tie up contracts to carry the iPad.

The new device from Apple will go on sale in the UK in April and mobile companies including Orange and Vodafone are desperate to provide data coverage.

Early indications suggest the iPad will not be restricted to one carrier, as the iPhone was with O2.
Orange and Vodafone were said to be seething at having missed out on the contract and are determined not to get left behind with the latest “must-have” gadget.
