SINGAPORE – Telcos M1, StarHub and SingTel have announced that they will be offering the iPad mini and 4th gen iPad with WiFi and Cellular from today. Launched this morning at M1 Shops in Paragon and 313@Somerset, SingTel shops at Comcentre, Tampines Mall and Jurong Point, and at all StarHub shops, this marks the official launch of the new cellular enabled iPad – which means you get 4G LTE access on top of the usual WiFi connectivity provided in the WiFi only iPads.
The three telcos have previously only offered the 3G versions of the 3rd gen iPad (the new iPad), and did not participate in the launch of the WiFi only iPad mini and 4th gen iPad.
All telcos will be selling the iPad mini and 4th gen iPad with WiFi + Cellular together with post-paid plans, however, StarHub is also offering the devices without a contract for pre-paid users.
Separately, local Apple reseller Epicentre and the Apple online store are also launching the cellular versions today, but Epicentre is only featuring the iPad mini on its website.
