Optus will offer Apple 9.7″ cult tablet “in the coming weeks along with a range of great value plans,” it said today, suggesting iPad 2 will be available before the holidays.

Until now, Australia’s two biggest telco operators did not stock the iPad 2 but by Christmas it looks like all three players including Vodafone will stock the tab, meaning more competitive pricing plans from all three could in the pipeline meaning more bang for your buck on tabs.

 

On Friday Optus also announced two new Android tablets adding to its line up – Dell’s 7 inch Streak and Acer Iconia A501 both running Honeycomb 3.2.
