iPad 2 Insurance for Just GBP 4.88 Per Month

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - March 24, 2011) - Boasting dual cameras and a super slim 8.4mm frame, the long-awaited iPad 2 finally goes on sale in the UK today, following months of hype.

Touted as 33% thinner and 15% lighter than its predecessor, the iPad 2 should live up to the expectations of hardened Apple fans.

But with prices starting at £429 for the 16GB wi-fi only model, owners will want to take out iPad insurance to ensure their smart new tablet is covered against theft, loss and accidental damage.

According to specialist gadget insurer,, the three most common claims for the iPad, which cost up to £699, were cracked screens, theft and water damage.

Stephen Ebbett, director of Protect Your Bubble, comments: "It might flaunt the latest technology Apple has to offer but, unfortunately the iPad 2 doesn't include in-built protection against the elements, spilt drinks, thieves or damage.

"Gadget fans want to make sure they are covered for theft, cracked screens and liquid damage worldwide, without having to pay an arm and a leg, because they'll have forked out enough just to get their hands on an iPad 2."

Protectyourbubble saw an average month-on-month increase of 275% in people taking out cover for the iPad, and it expects uptake for iPad 2 cover to be even steeper.
