O2 will not be selling the iPad 2.
A spokesperson from the Telefonica-owned company said customers will still be able to purchase the device SIM free and use its prepay SIM card.
“Customers using mobile broadband on O2 tell us that they value freedom and flexibility with their tablet devices, especially when they don’t initially know how much mobile data they will need,” the spokesperson said.
“We are continuing to offer iPad customers our O2 Pay & Go Mobile Broadband for iPad tariffs,” the spokeperson told V3.co.uk.
” These are directly integrated into iPad 2, and offer flexible payment options and the best browsing experience.”
Three different iPad tariffs are available with O2’s prepay offering. If you’re a light user, you can get 200MB a day and unlimited Wi-Fi for £2.04 per day.
Mid-users can pay £10.21 a month for 1GB data and unlimited Wi-Fi, while for heavy users you can pay £15.32 per month and get 2GB data and unlimited Wi-Fi over a 30-day period.
Orange and T-Mobile announced they would sell the iPad 2 from launch, but there’s no word on whether Vodafone, Three or Virgin Media would be stocking the new tablet.
