In a first for the company and Australia, Vodafone will, in the 'coming weeks,' offer customers the ability to purchase the iPad 2 directly for an as yet undisclosed price either upfront or over 12 or 24 month plans.

Currently the company offers a range of prepaid iPad plans for customers, but doesn't sell the popular tablet directly to customers.

Vodafone says the device will be compatible with both its existing network as well as the new 850Mhz network currently being rolled out across Australia after network woes late last year.

'We know our customers will enjoy the added freedom and convenience to seamlessly access the internet in more places, with the choice of staying connected via Vodafone 3G broadband internet or WiFi,' Ross Parker, Head of Devices at Vodafone Australia said in a statement today.

'The iPad 2 with Wi-Fi +3G works with both our new 850 network and our existing network to give customers a better all-round experience.'


During a phone call after last month's financial results release, Vodafone Hutchison Australia (VHA) CEO Nigel Dews told listeners the company now feels confident that its network is on the mend and has improved dramatically since January this year.

'We've learnt from our mistakes'¦. and we are making sure that this can't ever happen again. This [VHA] is a completely different place,' Dews said at the time.

Vodafone pricing information will be available closer to availability, however if its current data plans are any indication on a month by month basis $15-20 could provide up to 1.5GB of data.

Neither Optus or Telstra offer customers the opportunity to buy 3G variants of the iPad, with both opting to instead offer dedicated iPad data plans that require an iPad to be purchased elsewhere.
