Nina Bibby, O2’s Marketing and Consumer director had this to say:

“iPad continues to revolutionise the tablet market, giving people the ability to do even more on the go, and we’re proud to be able to offer it to our customers. We’re passionate about giving customers the best choice of mobile devices and, with O2 Refresh, the best way to buy them – no waiting to get a new device and lower bills when you stay with your current one. Our app TU Go also lets you make calls and send texts via iPad, so customers can get even more from their amazing technology.”
