For all those who want to jump on the Apple iPad bus and want to go the route of hooking up with a Fido data plan… you’ll soon be happy. From the internal screenshot of Fido’s Sales System is shows the iPad as registered hardware. So it looks like they’ll be announcing plans shortly, but nothing official yet. One would believe it’s identical to the Rogers iPad data plans ($15 for 250MB and $35 for 5GB). This means that Fido will be getting a Micro SIM card, which also means they’ll most likely carry the next-gen iPhone as it uses a Micro SIM.

(Thanks Tipster!)

    Just as a note. Having worked with Sales Central. I could tell you, any Rogers Hardware will also register with Fido, as they use the same core system. Just different branding on the front-end.

    great news;

    hopefully since they are self described as a discount brand,
    maybe we will find rates that actually compete with the other carriers..!!

    @salar, the Rogers Magic will register on Fido, but not the iPhone 3G.

    fido’s stance is there are “currenty” no plans to releace ipad plans on tha fido brand.. and refers customers to rogers.

    this Most likely meens they May releace ipad plans & micro sim when tha new iphone is anounced..

    thats what they did to us with blackberry anouncments

    and i could not see rogers keeping tha new iphone to them selves when bell, telus and most likely vergin will releace it..
    would be a suiside mission on rogers .

    Who cares about the iPad. I’m more interested in that 10GB data plan right on top of the photo. ;)

    justin, the 10gb is for the ipad, and everyone is wrong, I work for Fido marketing and we are going to get ipad plans at some point, at least we are planning to. If something shows up in the system it’s either because we WERE planning to launch it with fido, or we ARE.
