M1 is the first Telco to officially announce the arrival of the new iPad on the 16th March 2012 in Singapore. I guess that M1 must have been rushing the news out. The title of their website is still M1 iPad 2. BTW, M1 is offering HSPA+ (means download speed up to 21Mbps) plan at a reasonable price (S$40).
Here is the price plan from the website.
