Three has announced it will stock the iPad 2 in 'the coming weeks'. It is thought the device will launch on 25 March in the UK.
The move comes after Three reduced the upfront cost of the orginal iPad models by £100, and the contract price by £5, to £20 per month on a two-year contract. Prices for the iPad 2 are yet to be revealed.
Everything Everywhere has already announced it will range the iPad 2.
A Three spokesman said: 'Three UK today announced it will offer iPad 2 with Wi-Fi + 3G and also dedicated data plans for iPad 2 in the coming weeks. iPad 2 is the next generation of Apple's magical device for browsing the web, reading and sending email, enjoying photos, watching videos, listening to music, playing games, reading ebooks and much more.
'The amazing new iPad 2 improves on the original iPad by being thinner, lighter and faster, all while maintaining the same incredible 10 hours of battery life. For more information about iPad 2 please visit www.apple.com/ipad/.'
