First National Bank (FNB) has added the iPad 3 to its tablet and smartphone specials for Gold, Platinum, and Private account holders.

The latest iteration of Apple’s popular tablet PC launched in South Africa today.

FNB first introduced the deal in October last year (2011), when it offered customers the iPad 2 and other tablets and smartphones at reduced prices.

To get a device, account holders must let FNB add an additional amount to their monthly bank charges for 24 months.

On its website, FNB warns that it can’t guarantee the colour of any Apple iPad products, that limited stock is available and that they can’t guarantee a delivery date at this time.

“Should you place an order with FNB, please rest assured that we will do our utmost to get your device to you in the shortest possible time,” FNB said. “FNB also undertakes to communicate regularly with clients who have placed an order.”

FNB’s prices for the iPad 3 are largely the same as its launch pricing for the iPad 2 last year.

The bank recently reduced the price of its iPad 2 deal, and still lists the device as part of the promotion for those who want a lower cost device.

Apple has landed in hot water over its “4G” marketing on the iPad 3, and FNB explains on its website 4G LTE is supported on this model but only on certain North American Networks.

“However, the new iPad will work on local 3G networks,” FNB said.
