Residents in the United Kingdom should be prepared to hear insurance pitches for their tablets soon.
O2, the UK’s leading provider of mobile phones and broadband,
is now offering insurance coverage for Apple’s iPad products and Samsung Galaxy tablets.
O2′s Money subsidiary is offering the tablet insurance in two tiers: stolen or damaged tablet coverage is available to customers for £10 a month; additional coverage for lost, stolen or damaged products will cost £15 a month.
Interested customers should apply for insurance before their tablet is 90 days old. O2 reports that worldwide coverage is included and tablet lines from other manufacturers will be available in the next few months.
