VHA - the result of the recent Vodafone and Three merger in Australia - is either looking for some cheap publicity or sucking up to Apple. Or both, considering this announcement we received yesterday after the iPad announcement:
Vodafone Hutchison Australia (VHA) is very interested in the Apple iPad unveiled in the US today. Vodafone and 3 offer some of Australia’s highest value prepaid and contract mobile broadband plans and the exciting and innovative Apple iPad would be a welcome addition to our product range.
Vodafone Hutchison Australia will soon commence discussions with Apple regarding the availability of the Apple iPad in Australia. The latest news on Vodafone and 3 products and services, including any updates on the possible availability and pricing of the new Apple iPad, will be posted on www.vodafone.com.au and www.three.com.au.
Looks like the bandwagon has its first stowaway...
