MTN has announced the launch of the much-anticipated Apple iPad with Retina Display, which has been available on the MTN network stores as of 1 February 2012. The iPad with Retina Display will soon be joined on the MTN network by the iPad Mini, which is due to be released later this month.
“Technology continues to simplify business and people’s lives in a sophisticated manner on a daily basis,” says Serame Taukobong, Chief Marketing Officer at MTN South Africa. “For MTN, it is pivotal that we remain on the forefront of offering the latest cutting edge products and solutions to our customers, backed by our solid network infrastructure, for our customers to experience the full potential of the digital age. Both the Apple iPad with Retina Display and iPad Mini are innovative products that embody the characteristics of a true digital-age-mobile-communications-device that is able to offer a content-rich experience.”
The iPad with Retina Display features new and upgraded components such as the Apple A6X chip, and the Lightning connector. It comes standard with iOS 6.0 operating system, which provides a platform for audio-visual media, including electronic books, periodicals, films, music, computer games, presentations and web content.
The iPad Mini boasts the same features as the standard iPad 4, including FaceTime and iSight cameras, thousands of apps, as well as a 10-hour battery life and a 7.9 inches screen.
