Just been to my local O2 store to get my faulty sim card replaced and had a general conversation about the iPad (and a bit about iPhone OS 4.0). Most of this we already know, and is his own opinions, but I thought I'd post everything we chatted about - summarised anyway. * The O2 guy said he's played with OS 4.0 and said its awesome, apparently the manager at the O2 shop in Kidderminster (England) is a Dev and has the 4.0 OS already loaded up and he said the multi-tasking UI is a 'great user experience' (Obviously that is his opinion, but awesome!) * He mentioned that he is 'very sure' that a new iPhone will be announced/released this June (again his opinion, but nice to know about that!) * I asked about the iPad and he said O2 will be offering contract price plans for the iPad (ie. 12 month/18 month etc..) as well as a 30 day rolling contract, these to be announced late may (in conjunction with the UK release I presume) But the last bit of info I was really interested in * O2 won't be selling the iPad, only offering contracts for it, therefore no subsidised iPads from the networks (well O2 at least...) Looks like I will be pre-ordering a iPad 3G from Apple on the 10th May.
