Cheaper iPad 2 Options From Big W, Optus

As we’ve already noted, the iPad 2 will be in short supply on launch day. But there’s a couple of potential areas where you can save money on the tablet itself or the SIM to go with it, courtesy of Big W and Optus.

Nick at Gizmodo has details of the iPad 2 pricing from Big W; most models are $11 cheaper than the official Apple prices, while the 64GB+3G model is $51 cheaper. How much stock they’ll have at the 5pm launch is, of course, another matter.

Optus is also offering a special on its prepaid iPad SIM kits, offering a free starter kit with 500MB of data through Harvey Norman, Dick Smith, Apple, David Jones and Myer. Optus normally charges a $30 setup fee (but includes 2GB of data with that version).
