In need of iPad? Head to the Berkeley

The fact that Apple’s latest life-changing gadget hasn’t arrived in the UK yet - though orders into Israel are o’er brimming once again – hasn’t prevented the iPad from making its way to one of London’s most upscale hotels, The Berkeley.

Now to be found within a select number of The Berkeley’s eye-wateringly expensive suites, guests are granted access to a range of specially tailored apps, including newspapers ranging from Le Monde to the Wall Street Journal.

The iPad is available in the Berkeley, Conservatory and Chelsea Suites. Standard rooms do not qualify for iPad ownership, so be sure to check before you book – or just hold fire till late May, and buy your own.
