iPad2 bundled with M1 and Starhub data plans

Local telcos, StarHub and M1, announced they will soon sell the iPad2 with dedicated data plans.

Starhub announcement

The upfront cost for buying an iPad2 bundled with a data plan (I suppose it'll be a 2-year contract) would be much lower than buying it without. I wonder whether the Growth Dividend we received early this month would be enough to cover the cost... Regardless, expect long queues on the launch date - longer than the queues on polling day!

(I'm sure Singtel will follow suit. I did not manage to find a press release from Singtel)
