The nation's number two telco Optus has revealed a refresh of its iPad plans in preparation for this afternoon's 5PM Australian launch of the second version of Apple's flagship tablet.
The nation’s number two telco Optus this afternoon confirmed plans to bust open the doors of the love nest created this week by Telstra and Motorola, confirming plans to launch the US mobile giant’s Xoom Android tablet on its own network just a month after the device goes on sale with Telstra.
The nation's number two telco Optus has achieved one of its first exclusives with Taiwanese handset manufacturer HTC, unveiling plans to exclusively launch the company's Incredible S handset on its mobile network from the 1st of May -- although pricing for the device has yet to be released.
Apple's decision to pioneer the use of the new micro-sim format in the iPad has enabled operators, such as Optus and Telstra, to launch iPad specific mobile data plans even through they are not selling iPads. But if you can get a better deal on another plan, you can simply hack the standard sim.
