VODAFONE Hutchison Australia and Telstra will have the Apple iPad ready for sale in about six weeks, ahead of rival Optus.

Eager fans hoping to get their hands on the hyped-up device had a rude shock today when Apple pushed the original April launch to the end of May.

VHA will offer the 3G and Wi-Fi iPad to Vodafone and 3 Mobile customers with a range of dedicated price plans for all models of the touchscreen tablet. But the telco is keeping mum on what the actual price plans will entail or whether they will be available in post or pre-paid options.

Telstra has also said it will offer dedicated iPad price plans but it is unclear if the telco will have all versions of the device for sale.

Optus is yet to reveal if it will stock the iPad.

The iPad was scheduled to hit local shores at the end of this month but Apple has been forced to delay its arrival due to the overwhelming demand for the device in the US.

This is the second time Apple has had to put back an iPad launch: in January, its US debut was rescheduled to April after analysts reported that production delays and difficulties with suppliers would limit the number of units available.

Apple has sold more than 500,000 iPads since it first went on sale at the start of April, but a glut of complaints about poor Wi-Fi connections and problems with charging the device have marred its launch.

Only the Wi-Fi version of the iPad has been released in the US but a 3G version is expected to be available later this month. iPad prices range from $US499 ($534) to $US829.
