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.

8ta’s data plans for the iPad 2 offers access to its 3G data network and all data plans will be available without a contract, offering the freedom to activate or cancel a plan at any time.

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.

iPad 2 improves on the original iPad by being thinner and lighter, sporting a faster graphical and central processing unit, as well as front and rear-facing cameras, all while maintaining the same 10 hours of battery life.

Amith Maharaj, Managing Executive of 8ta said: “8ta is excited to extend its exclusive data deal to the iPad 2 and remains the only operator in SA to do so. The iPad 2 has been tested and certified for use on the 8ta network.”

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.
