O2 has announced further details of its dedicated data tariffs for iPad WiFi + 3G. All iPad data tariffs will be available without a long contract and include unlimited access to BT Openzone and The Cloud WiFi hotspots at no additional cost.
Apple and O2 have worked together to provide a breakthrough way to easily activate, manage and monitor an account right on iPad. Customers will be notified as they approach their data limit with a direct link to iPad settings to check data usage, top up the account and upgrade or cancel their tariff.
iPad allows users to connect with their apps and content in a more intimate, intuitive and fun way than ever before. Users can browse the web, read and send email, enjoy and share photos, watch HD videos, listen to music, play games, read ebooks and much more, all using iPad’s Multi-Touch user interface. iPad WiFi + 3G models are just 0.5 inches thick and weigh just 1.6 pounds, thinner and lighter than any laptop or netbook, and deliver up to 10 hours of battery life for surfing the web on WiFi, watching videos or listening to music, and up to nine hours of surfing the web using a 3G data network.
“We are truly excited to provide service for iPad WiFi + 3G,” said Sally Cowdry, O2’s marketing director. “We’ve worked closely with Apple to make sure customers get an excellent experience when using their iPad WiFi + 3G on O2. Not only will it be quick and easy to buy value for money data access from the device, but customers will also benefit from our overall service wrap which includes great network and great customer service and the added benefit of access to thousands of public WiFi hotspots.”
O2 will be supporting iPad with Wi-Fi + 3G with a range of great value pay and go mobile broadband tariff options, giving customers the freedom and control to switch on or off mobile data as best suits their needs, directly on the device. O2 micro SIM packs for iPad with Wi-Fi + 3G will be available through O2 retail stores and O2’s website.
