UK mobile brands Orange and T-Mobile, both operated by joint venture Everything Everywhere, have confirmed they’ll be offering Apple’s iPad 2 with a data plan contract.
Both brands already offer the first generation of Apple’s tablet on a £25pm plan in return for an upfront fee of £200.
Availability and pricing details have not yet been revealed, however with Apple selling the new model for the same price as the existing version it’s expected the networks will follow suit.
In identical statements the networks said they would “offer iPad 2 with Wi-Fi + 3G and also dedicated data plans for iPad 2 in the coming weeks.
“iPad 2 is the next generation of Apple’s magical device for browsing the web, reading and sending email, enjoying photos, watching videos, listening to music, playing games, reading ebooks and much more. The amazing new iPad 2 improves on the original iPad by being thinner, lighter and faster, all while maintaining the same incredible 10 hours of battery life.”
The iPad 2 launches in the UK on March 25th.
