TELUS and Rogers have both announced plans to sell the 4th gen iPad and iPad mini. As expected, they’ll be selling models with both Wi-Fi and cellular connectivity, offering them with their tablet plans.
No subsidies will be included and you’ll rather pay the full price of Apple’s tablet and then use it with a plan that works for you. The good thing here is that you are free to stop paying whenever you want; the bad thing is – you’ll have to pay the full price of the iPad / iPad mini.
16GB version of the iPad with Retina display at the Apple Store sells for $629, while the 32GB model could be yours for $100 more. As for the iPad mini, the 16GB version could be yours for $459, and the one with 32 gigs of built-in storage for $559.
