    based on the stats: 16GB, 32GB & 64GB of memory, this can not sell for much more than an iPod touch.

    I'm guessing 16GB $259-$299
    32GB $359-$399
    63GB $459-$499

    Only competing with NetBooks and eReaders (e.g. Kindle).

    Yeah, this is Apple. You have to pay into the Turtleneck fund.

    At this point price will be a major factor. This would be an incredible hit at $299, a total miss at $1599 and anything in between... should be interesting.

    OK, how are they going to justify current iPhone data plan pricing? Lots of people would kill to save 50% on data for 250 gig a month.

    If they do another ATT exclusive deal, it really will put the fire to ATT and Apple since this is just another data hungry device that ATT can;t support on its crap network.

    Then again, if the rumors bout iPhone to Verizon or true, it may free up some bandwidth for them. ;)

    Ok, here comes the pricing. Says they were very agressive on price goals.

    If AT&T is having BW issues with iPhone users how does something streaming HD video help that?

    I don't see how a lot of people are going to pony up for data service at home, their iphone and now again for their iPad?

    Then they won't sell many.

    $700 for nothing more than a bigger screen on an iPod touch, no thank you.

    I believe that's what I voted (but might have been $399).
