Vodafone to stock iPad 2


Operator expected to start stocking new Apple device on March 25 becoming the fourth UK operator to offer the gadget

Vodafone has become the fourth operator to announce the iPad 2 after T-Mobile, Orange and Three.

A page put up today on the company’s website said the device would be available in the “coming weeks” – expected to be March 25 when the gadget goes on sale in the UK.

The operator will also offer dedicated data plans for the device.

Unlike the other operators which all began selling the first version of the iPad in the run up to Christmas last year, this is the first Apple tablet Vodafone will stock.

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.
