Has Smartone-Vodafone (SMV) finally listened to my reader's and my call in my Open Letter to Smartone-Vodafone? Along with the different tariff plans SMV releases for the iPad they have also released a "Tag-On Micro-SIM for iPad" plan for existing SMV subscribers. For an additional HKD128/month use of any voice and data plans with unlimited data can share the data usage with their iPad. It also includes unlimited free access to WiFi hotspots in HK. For anyone without unlimited data plans they can add an additional HKD88/month for the privilege.
This is definitely a step in the right direction. Please keep it up.
[Updated: July 23, 2010, 16:59] Well I may be a bit too hasty to compliment SMV. It has been confirmed via Smartone-Vodafone Facebook page that this new iPad plans do not include their X-Power service, which includes that ability to playback Flash and YouTube videos while the iPad is on the SMV 3G network. Not good!
[Updated: July 30, 2010, 11:59] I just confirmed with SMV that X-Power cannot be added to any of the iPad tariff plans for $48/month as previously thought.
