VHA and Telstra have announced they will be offering data plans for the Apple iPad

Australia's three main telcos — VHA, Telstra and Optus — have all announced today that they are offering a series of mobile broadband plans for the upcoming Apple iPad.

VHA has announced it will offer "dedicated iPad price plans for all 3G + Wi-Fi iPad models from the end of May in Australia," but provided no further details.

GoodGearGuide contacted VHA for more information, but the company could not confirm if prepaid or contract plans would be offered by either Vodafone or 3 Mobile, nor would it reveal any pricing.

Telstra and Optus both stated that they would also be offering iPad specific plans but neither carrier has released any other details.

It is unclear if Australian providers will offer the iPad as part of a contract plan that subsidises the 3G-capable device or instead will adopt the prepaid model that will be used in the US.

Apple announced today that the worldwide release of the iPad would be delayed for at least a month until the end of May, citing undersupply due to demand for the tablet device in the US.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
