SaskTel today announced it will offer dedicated data plans for iPad 2 with Wi-Fi + 3G in Saskatchewan beginning May 27, 2011. All data plans will be available without a contract, providing the freedom to activate or cancel a plan at any time.
iPad 2 is the second generation of Apple's revolutionary new device, featuring an entirely new design that is 33 percent thinner and up to 15 percent lighter than the original iPad, while maintaining the same stunning 9.7-inch LED-backlit LCD screen. iPad 2 features Apple's new dual-core A5 processor for blazing fast performance and stunning graphics and now includes two cameras, a front-facing VGA camera for FaceTime and Photo Booth, and a rear-facing camera that captures 720p HD video, bringing the innovative FaceTime feature to iPad users for the first time. Though it is thinner, lighter, faster and packed with new features, iPad 2 still delivers the up to 10 hours of battery life* users have come to expect.
"SaskTel is committed to providing our customers with access to the best network, data plans and devices," said Ron Styles, SaskTel President and CEO. "We are excited to bring affordable data plans for the iPad 2 to our customers enabling an unbeatable experience at our Wi-Fi locations or on Saskatchewan's largest and fastest 4G network."
