Three add the iPad Mini with Retina Display to their portfolio

17/11/2013

 

Three, the mobile Internet friendly mobile operator, have been quick off the mark to ensure that the new iPad Mini with Retina display is stocked on their shelves. The iPad Mini, if you’ve not been around lately, is Apple’s latest iteration of the genre, this model featuring Apple’s now legendary Retina display.  What that means in real terms is a display screen that is crisp and sharp, showing none of the classic graininess of the typical computer or tablet screen.   And in a 7″ format, the iPad Mini with Retina display is highly portable fitting pockets and bags easily, also weighing next to nothing.

The models sold by Three are, of course, equipped with mobile networking for 3G and 4G the iPad Mini is completely ready for Three’s 4G when it is released to the public from December 2013 onwards. And with Three the 4G will be accessible, where available, for no extra charge, unlike any of the other UK mobile networks.  Add the iPad Mini with Retina’s “up to” 10 hours battery life and you have a device that has the potential to give a full day’s practical use between charges.

As with all mobile data plans on Three there is a per month usage cap, and in this case it is 15GB.  That is a remarkable amount of mobile data for a tablet device and unless you are going to use it for streaming video it will typically more than suffice.  Of course, that cap only applies to mobile data – if you are using the device across WiFi you are not in any way limited by your mobile data plan.

Data Only?

If you already have a 3G/4G capable mobile data device and only want a data plan then Three have also announced that One Month contracts are available with either 1GB data for £7.50 a month or 10GB data for £15 a month. These are splendid low-commitment (30-day notice) contracts with very reasonable amounts of data.

Head on over to Three’s website for full details of the various plans and devices and get yourself ready for the 4G roll out on Three.
