Apple tablets to be sold on EE’s network with 4G connectivity, with Orange and T-Mobile selling the products on their 3G networks
EE will sell the Apple iPad Mini and fourth generation iPad in the coming weeks. Tariff details and pricing has yet to be confirmed.
It said it will sell these products with a “range of attractive data plans” that will enable users to connect to its upcoming 4G network, with speeds typically five times faster than 3G. Orange and T-Mobile will also offer the iPads on their 3G networks.
The iPad Mini (pictured), which will be available in black and white, is 23 per cent thinner and 53 per cent lighter than the third generation iPad at 7.2mm and 0.68 pounds respectively.
It will be powered by Apple’s dual-core A5 chip and feature a 7.9-inch screen, five megapixel front-facing camera and 10 hours of battery life.
The fourth generation iPad is powered by Apple’s A6X chip and will come with a 9.7 Retina screen and new FaceTime HD camera. Both come with the iOS operating system, which has over 200 new features.
