3 today announced it will offer dedicated data plans for iPad with Wi-Fi + 3G in Ireland beginning July 23, 2010. All data plans will be available without a contract, providing the freedom to activate or cancel a plan at any time.

iPad allows users to connect with their apps and content in a more intimate, intuitive and fun way than ever before. Users can browse the web, read and send email, enjoy and share photos, watch HD videos, listen to music, play games, read ebooks and much more, all using iPad’s revolutionary Multi-Touch user interface. iPad with Wi-Fi + 3G models are just 0.5 inches thick and weigh just 1.6 pounds—thinner and lighter than any laptop or netbook—and deliver up to 10 hours of battery life for surfing the web on Wi-Fi, watching videos or listening to music, and up to nine hours of surfing the web using a 3G data network.*

Commenting on the launch, Robert Finnegan, CEO of 3 said:As Ireland’s largest high speed network, 3 is pleased to announce its value-focused data plans for iPad. Our customers have been anticipating the launch of the iPad in Ireland so we are delighted to reveal our competitive pricing for this must-have device. 3 always aims to deliver market-leading value to its customers across all its products and services, and we are sure our iPad proposition will deliver on this promise”.
