Telstra are set to join Vodafone in the direct retail sales of Apple's tablet, the iPad 2. Telstra will directly retail Apple's iPad 2 from November 15, with monthly plans beginning from just $49. The iPad 2 will be available through Telstra Business Centres, Telstra Shops, online or over the phone at 132 200.


Telstra will offer the Wi-Fi + 3G model of the iPad 2, in 16, 32 and 64GB sizes, on two-year contracts and pre-paid data plans. Starting with the 16GB iPad 2, it will cost $0 upfront on $49, $59, $69 and $99 plans. Monthly data caps are 1, 4, 8 and 15GB, respectively.

The 32GB variant of the iPad 2 will also cost $0 upfront, with monthly costs of $54, $64, $74 and $104 with data allowances the same as the 16GB model. Finally, the 64GB model will come with an upfront cost of $24 and monthly pricing of $57, $67, $77 and $107 per month. Data allowances remain unchanged once again.

Outright prices are $720, $840 and $936 for the 16, 32 and 64GB models, respectively. Apple sells the 16 and 64GB models cheaper through the Apple Store, but the 32GB is actually $1 cheaper through Telstra, woo.
