Telstra to supply iPad 2 next week

 

Joins Vodafone in direct retail.

Telstra plans to directly retail Apple's iPad 2 from November 15, with monthly plans beginning from $49.

The tablet will be made available through Telstra Business Centres, Telstra Shops, online or over the phone at 132 200.

The telco will offer the Wi-Fi + 3G version of the tablet in all three storage capacities - 16GB, 32GB and 64GB - on two-year contracts and pre-paid data plans.

Pricing

The 16GB iPad 2 will cost $0 upfront on $49, $59, $69 and $99 plans. Monthly data allowance is capped at 1GB, 4GB, 8GB and 15GB, respectively.

The 32GB iPad 2 will also cost $0 upfront, with monthly costs jumping to $54, $64, $74 and $104 (data allocations remain the same as above).

The 64GB model, meanwhile, comes saddled with an upfront cost of $24, plus $57, $67, $77 and $107 per month. Again, data allowances remain unchanged.

Users are able to buy each model outright for $720 (16GB), $840 (32GB) and $936 (64GB). While the 16GB and 64GB models are slightly cheaper than at the Apple Store, the 32GB version is one dollar more expensive.
