    Predictions? Sources? Would you actually pay for another data plan just for a tablet?

    Lets hope there is a non-subsidized/carrier version if so...

    i'd probably tether my iPhone data to it. that is if i were to get a tablet.

    but the data plan for the tablet would be roughly 40 bucks.

    uhh, i'm saying that instead of a data plan for the Tablet, i could just tether my iPhone internet to it via bluetooth.

    it's not out of the ordinary for mobile devices to come with a 3G antenna to ensure Internet everywhere, just look at netbooks and umpcs.

    Yeah... well if it were, it would be most likely AT&T and they cant even handle the iPhones atm.

    I'd just tether my iPhone... Although since I would have my iPhone with me, I probably wouldn't even have the tablet.
