Vodafone, Orange join UK carriers unveiling iPad 2 plans

updated 03:35 pm EDT, Thu March 24, 2011

Korea's SK Telecom confirms intent

UK carriers Orange and Vodafone have announced details of their subsidized iPad 2 plans. Beginning tomorrow, Vodafone is selling 16, 32 and 64GB tablets at prices of 199, 249 and 349 for existing subscribers. For new customers, a 30 premium is being imposed.

A smaller but similar penalty applies to monthly fees for the two-year contract required with a subsidized tablet. Whereas an existing subscriber must pay only 24.50 a month, the cost rises to 27 for newcomers. Included with either is 2GB of data, with a 15 overage fee for every extra gigabyte.

Orange's subsidized iPad prices start at 199 on a two-year contract. Up to 2GB of data is offered, though the amount varies based on the time of day. Both the Orange and Vodafone plans are roughly similar to those revealed by T-Mobile earlier today.

South Korea's SK Telecom has meanwhile announced its intent to carry the iPad 2 next month. While Apple had previously mentioned an April date for a Korean iPad, SK Telecom is the first carrier in the region to confirm sales, even if none of its data plans have been made public. Rival KT will only say that it is actively considering selling the new tablet.
