8ta today announced that it will extend its iPad dedicated data plans to the next generation iPad 2 with Wi-Fi + 3G beginning 29 April 2011 when the iPad 2 is due to launch in South Africa.

The 8ta data tariffs and features for the iPad 2 will remain the same as that offered for the first generation device.

The iPad 2 is the next generation of Apple’s device for browsing the web, reading and sending email, enjoying photos, watching videos, listening to music, playing games, reading ebooks and more.

The prepaid data bundles for the iPad 2 will be offered at the same rate as the first generation iPad and remains exclusive to iStore sales of the device.

These bundles are as follows:

  1. 512MB for R120
  2. 1GB for R160
  3. 3GB for R299

8ta said that post paid data bundles for the iPad will be offered at a later stage.
