Ipad 2 Currys 0 percent finance £60 x 6 + deposit

Found 22nd Nov 2011
Not sure how this one is going to go down.
Currys are offering zero percent finance on ipads over 399.

Seems like Ipad prices might be going down, so not sure if this deserves heat or not.

This is the best tablet in the world.

Much better than the likes of the ASUS Transformer, the Motorola Xoom (exhume) and the Samsung Galaxy Tab. The only tablet that comes close is the Sony Tablet S.

Yeah - i just don't if it is cheaper go through a phone company?

Great Tab, daughters have them..... nice way to get them with interest free!! hot deal!

Are they not supposed to come down soon?

Best tablet in the world? LOL

I am a mac fan but for this not to have flash support for 400.00, I refuse to buy one.

I wonder if they might come down - I also wonder whether Apple will do their zero percent deal.
They did this last Christmas

Check out the reviews between Kindle Fire (Flash support) and iPad. Flash makes the experience really glitchy and doesn't scroll smoothly.

Websites will start moving away from Flash eventually.

Flash mobile has been killed by Adobe. Flash is old technology that should be phased out sooner rather than later (well it will if web developers have any sense - which is debatable!).

Check out the reviews for any tablet that costs anything near the ipad price and you will see what I do, smooth flash without a problem even over 3G.

Just because Amazon produce a tablet with a modified OS doean't mean anything, even low price units like that Archos 10.1 @ £129 runs flash silky smooth.

Actually they haven't "killed" flash, just that they are not going to do a new version. The current versions will be supported and Adobe air uses flash and they are continuing to develope that.

Youtube is moving away from Flash and to HTML5.

I'm on the opt-in trial of HTML5 and it's so much better.

Best packaged but the fact it lacks alot of basics of other tabs and its hard to mod is a joke

other tabs:-
-have flash (yes html 5 coming, but id like to view flash sites now thanks, not in a year or two)
-are easier to root / mod
-are cheaper - with the kindle fire rumoured to be £149, or even £129 (its a cutdown experience but will satisfy most) - then bye apple
-dont have itunes - worst app ever coded - makes other bloated apps like nortons / mcaffee antivirus look slim
-dont have so many clueless sheep followers
-some are better specced
-connectivity to non-apple products is a JOKE - i had an iphone 3G and wont ever buy another apple product after the hell i had trying to connect it to a new windows 7 64bit computer, new alpine car stereo that was iphone compatible!, an xbox, itunes drm music that i had to PAY FOR AGAIN to DRM unlock (which i refused!!) - deal breaker for me

i was going to buy an ipad 2 as the competition was so poor, but just didnt think it was worth it and there is a horrible underlying arrogance about apple and their customers that i dont like - like bmw drivers. Instead ive got 2 hp touchpads, a galaxy 7in tab and an acer ferrari netbook for almost same money (much much better!!)

you watch, people are moving to samsung phones in droves and as for tablets amazon will soon corner that market - the ipad will just be a niche product for the sheep who think are superior

which will mean the alternative will be used. we wont need flash with html5 anyway - its one thing i agree with steve jobs that this type of app shouldnt be owned and controlled by one company as it stiffles development. Mind you his comments smack of hypocrisy!!

agree its old tech. But we are at the present and unless i have a time machine then thats no good. This is the failing of mr jobs, whilst i agree no one company should be in control with this app, he failed to see what people want NOW. Am i supposed to wait 2ish years before i can get the best out of the ipad that paid ALOT of money for - total joke - im out.

I prefer to 'take it or leave it' rather than not be given a choice.

It is supposed to be heavily discounted this black Friday if you really want one.

I'm not going to offer any opinion, except that flash (in all forms) is w*nk, but I will say that main post sounds rather bitter Royals. Fair enough if they aren't your bag, but that sounds like you have an axe to grind.

Hey let's all take out credit agreements like there's no recession.

Debt in any form is a particularly bad idea right now, if you can't afford it outright don't do it.

Damn! I put this down for a Currys away win on the coupon

Used the Tesco deal for mine which is basically the same. If you are thinking about getting one then you might as well get it interest free and spread the cost.

Good deal. Had this email today and went down to the nearest store to get four.

All in stock. Christmas sorted!

Currys struggling to sell ipads?

january/february release for ipad3?? = big price drop for ipad2 after xmas

as i've said before, i dont really see why rrp is a deal anyway.

you can either afford it or you can't

I don't get why these deals are posted! Just get a decent 0% credit card and pay it off over 15 mths instead @ £26 / mth

You can't spend extra credit with this deal. I think we all know that a credit card used for this purchase won't remain 'clean' over the Xmas period.

What about the 1000's of people that can easily afford to buy the item outright, but prefer to take advantage of 0% offers? The money is better in my account for 6 months than theirs!

why better in yours? if anything id rather just spend as I have than to have DDs coming out of my account every month, taking a slice of my pay even before I have a chance.

Haven't Tesco had this going for over a month now? Plus you get clubcard points there and the extended 31st of January Christmas returns policy...

People act as if credit is the evil of the world! Ok so you have to be responsible....big deal!

With inflation at 5%, £400 is worth a lot more now than it will be in 6 months. Yes, I know its staggered but the idea is the same

Erm, not everyone lives their life on the edge of debt. There's more to life than balancing a current account. Not heard of savings? Spare disposable income etc etc?

top marks for comet to offer 0% Interest deal on ipads!

I heard the touchpad is far superior and web OS is definitely going places and those touchpads were definitely not bought on a "herp derp cheap tablet lol" moment.. Also out of all the websites I view, 97% of them are HTML 5 and most flash content are adverts which is nice to not have to see.

Yeah yeah stroll on perhaps you can explain how you can create applications like Flash in HTML5? No thought not. Flash will easily be around for years yet and in fact they HAVEN'T killed it off at all the desktop will continue to be developed and as such mobile use will continue for the foreseeable too

Flash is done for in the long term HTML 5 all the way - IPAD 2 Rocks, waiting for black friday to get another :-)

This is very unlikely, rumors are there may be a release of an ipad 2s in spring them christmas time next year ipad 3
