Swisscom to Offer iPad 2 on September 30

Berne, 29 September 2011

Swisscom today announced it will offer iPad 2 with Wi-Fi + 3G in Switzerland on September 30. Swisscom will offer all models of iPad 2 with Wi-Fi + 3G on select tariff plans with a contract, as well as a range of attractive data plans for iPad 2 without a contract.

iPad 2 is the second generation of Apple's revolutionary new device, featuring an entirely new design that is 33 percent thinner and up to 15 percent lighter than the original iPad, while maintaining the same stunning 9.7-inch LED-backlit LCD screen. iPad 2 features Apple's new dual-core A5 processor for blazing fast performance and stunning graphics and now includes two cameras, a front-facing VGA camera for FaceTime and Photo Booth, and a rear-facing camera that captures 720p HD video, bringing the innovative FaceTime feature to iPad users for the first time. Though it is thinner, lighter, faster and packed with new features, iPad 2 still delivers the up to 10 hours of battery life* users have come to expect.

"We are pleased to announce that the iPad 2 is now available in Switzerland on a wide range of attractive tariffs with, or without, a subscription," said Christian Petit, head of Swisscom Residential Customers. "iPad 2 customers will be able to use our excellent network coverage and high-speed data transmission to really make the most of their experience with iPad 2."

Customers can buy iPad 2 at Swisscom Shops, the Swisscom Online Shop and from selected specialist dealers beginning tomorrow. For complete details on pricing and availability, please visit
