T-Mobile Announces New iPad Deals

After Orange, Vodafone and Three, T-Mobile has become the fourth major mobile phone operator to officially announce its "new iPad" tariff. For £24 per month on a two year contract, customers can get 1GB monthly data allowance with 1GB quiet time (but unlike Orange, there's no Wi-Fi).

New customers will pay £229 for the 16GB version of the New iPad, £279 for the 32GB version while existing customers will be charged £199 and £249 respectively. T-Mobile will not sell the 64GB at the moment. (Here is the T-Mobile new iPad monthly contract page).

As for other data packages, T-Mobile will not charge users if you go beyond your data allowance, which means that in practice, although you have 1GB allowance, you will still be able to browse the web and check your email (and do other lightweight stuff) even if you're use your quota. No download, streaming, uploading or VoIP possible though.
