“Vodafone Hutchison Australia, Telstra and Optus will have the Apple iPad ready for sale in about six weeks,” Mitchell Bingemann reports for Australian IT. “Eager fans hoping to get their hands on the hyped-up device had a rude shock today when Apple pushed the original April launch to the end of May.”
“VHA will offer the 3G and Wi-Fi iPad to Vodafone and 3 Mobile customers with a range of dedicated price plans for all models of the touchscreen tablet. But the telco is keeping mum on what the actual price plans will entail or whether they will be available in post or pre-paid options,” Bingemann reports. “Telstra has also said it will offer dedicated iPad price plans but it is unclear if the telco will have all versions of the device for sale. Optus will offer plans for 3G-enabled iPad models.”
Bingemann reports, “The iPad was scheduled to hit local shores at the end of this month but Apple has been forced to delay its arrival due to the overwhelming demand for the device in the US.”
