My View

Overall I don’t feel they are attractive enough, I feel that they are slightly more expensive than I thought they will be. Honestly, who will use up 50gb on their iPad?! They should have a lighter plan maybe a 12-20gb plan which is half the price, I think the response should be better.

Hopefully M1 or Starhub will be coming out with better plans for iPad, and because iPad is not tied to any carrier, people can buy iPad at Apple Store and just purchase a contract from any Carriers in Singapore! 🙂

So, what do you think ?
