3 pushing tablets to UK users

The FT has pulled its app from the App Store

The UK’s mobile underdog and most disruptive wireless player, 3, has unveiled its own tariffs for the Apple iPad, which lands in the UK on Friday, and they’re pretty competitive.

On a one month rolling contract, 3 is pitching 1GB of data for £7.50 per month and 10GB of data for £15.00 per month. This comes in as the cheapest monthly deal for 1GB and the best value for 10GB.

Details on O2, Vodafone and Orange’s tariffs can be found here. So far T-Mobile UK is the only UK carrier left out in the cold without an iPad.

Interestingly, 3 is also pitching itself as tablet friendly for devices other than the iPad. On Tuesday the carrier began promoting a range of tariffs for its MiFi mobile hotspot device, which allows a user to connect non-cellular devices (such as the iPod Touch or a wifi only tablet) over wifi and make use of the MiFi as mobile backhaul.
