VHA has finally announced its iPad data plans, just two days before the launch of the iPad in Australia.

VHA (Vodafone Hutchison Australia) has finally announced its dedicated Apple iPad data pricing, just two days ahead of the iPad launch in Australia on Friday May 28.

VHA's 3 will offer both dedicated prepaid and monthly data plans for iPad with Wi-Fi + 3G models, while Vodafone has only announced prepaid plans.

Vodafone is offering six prepaid data plans, starting at $9.95 (250MB/30 day expiry) and ranging up to $150 (12GB/365 day expiry). Other prepaid options include $14.95 (1GB/30 day expiry), $29.95 (4GB/30 day expiry), $49.95 (Unlimited data/30 day expiry) and $100 (6GB/100 day expiry).

3 has a smaller range of prepaid data plans, but offers "bonus data" each time customers recharge. The plans are as follows: $15 (500MB+1GB bonus/30 day expiry), $29 (2GB+2GB bonus/ 30 day expiry), $49 (4GB+2GB bonus/30 day expiry) and $149 (12GB/365 day expiry). 3 claims the bonus data will not be available immediately upon recharge but will be credited to an account and available for use within 48 hours.

All Vodafone and 3 mobile iPad 3G data plans include a free Micro-SIM starter pack and if you recharge before the end of the credit expiry period any unused data will be rolled over to the next month — provided you don't exceed the maximum balance of 14GB.

In addition to prepaid plans, 3 mobile also offers two month-to month plans — $15 for 1GB and $29 for 3GB.

"Vodafone and 3 are bringing consumers the best value iPad data plans, with the best $15 plan from 3 and Australia's only truly 'unlimited data' plan on Vodafone — so consumers can spend as much time as they like doing what they love online," Nigel Dews, CEO of VHA. "Vodafone and 3's iPad plans are simple, affordable and packed with unbeatable value."

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

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
