O2 will not sell the iPad 2 on subsidised contracts but will continue to offer data packages for the device.
Earlier today (4 March), Everything Everywhere confirmed it would sell the device in store when it launches on 25 March, on both the T-Mobile and Orange brands. It also sells a subsidised version of the original iPad, which has been reduced in price.
Vodafone and Three have so far remained tight lipped about whether they will stock the iPad 2.
An O2 spokesman said: ‘We continue to offer great value, flexible data tariffs for iPad 2 and the unique ability to manage these tariffs on the device itself. Although we will not be selling iPad 2 with subsidy, O2 microsims with our great value iPad tariffs are still available for customers who have purchased the device elsewhere.
‘In addition to our award-winning mobile broadband service, customers also benefit from unlimited Wi-Fi at thousands of The Cloud and BT Openzone hotspots.’
