Three confirms iPad 2


Operator expected to start stocking new Apple device on March 25 along with data packages especially designed for the gadget

Three has become the third operator after Orange and T-Mobile to announce it will stock the recently unveiled Apple iPad 2.

The operator confirmed to Mobile News today it would stock both the 3G and Wi-Fi versions of the tablet in the “coming weeks” – expected to be on March 25 when it goes on general sale in the UK.

There will also be dedicated data plans available from the operator for the device although a Three spokesperson would reveal any more information about these when questioned.

The iPad 2 will sport Apple’s new dual-core A5 processor which the manufacturer says will increase performance, along with two cameras – a front facing VGA camera and a rear facing camera that is able to capture 720 p HD video.

Despite the new design the Apple iPad 2 will keep the same 9.7 inch LED- backlit LCD screen as it’s predecessor.

It will also keep the same battery which Apple says provides up to 10 hours of usage.
