$499 base price. 3G is an extra $130 + $30 a month unlimited data.
I want this thing.
I have to think of way to come up with $650 bucks. This is truly amazing.
Down size is no multitasking and no phone.
It runs at 1 Ghz, so I can expect an operating system upgrade eventually that runs apps in virtual box so that it can multitask. It has a built in mic and speaker, but it is a little overlarge to use as a phone easily.
The $29.99 a month for unlimited 3G will start a price war. I expect Verizon and T-mobile to drop their prices. It won’t affect Europe and Canada where there are state enforced monopolies. It will still cost an arm and a leg there.
