As promised, iPad pre-ordering will start on Monday, later than expected and – for those who have been counting down the minutes – a long weekend away.

But, with the seemingly interminable wait almost at an end, Apple has also answered some of the burning questions surrounding the tablet’s UK launch – the price and the date you can finally have it in your hands.

Early adopters who haven’t jumped the gun and ordered from the States will be able to snap up an iPad from £430 – with prices rising to £700 for the 64GB 3G edition – and get their hands on that 9.7in touchscreen on May 28.
