    As long as the 5GB/month LIMITED service is delivered to aircards and
    tethered devices, the point is moot.

    "unlimited" service, lower case intended, is only offered to devices
    that lack the capabilities to download massive data storms and have no
    way of offloading that data to other systems, play the vast majority of
    the internet's streaming stations because they lack the licensed
    technology such as Adobe Flash, DivX, XviD, Windows Media, Real Video
    and Audio, to do so, relieving the carriers from having to provide
    streaming services from the vast majority of the web. Adobe, by the
    way, is about to release a web-based iPhone product Steve Jobs has yet
    to block, so non-Flash devices like his will be able to play Adobe's
    server customers' Flash content through an Adobe proxy. There was news
    of that across the geekdom just today when reporters were asking Adobe
    about the lack of Flash support for Apple's sellphone products. Adobe
    has tried very hard to get Flash player on these devices to no avail.
    I'm sure ATTWS is firmly against Flash support as the Adobe Flash
    product head said something like 75% of video streaming content on the
    net is FLASH based.

    You can count the H.264 TV stations on a single sheet of paper....no
    threat to ATTWS' bandwidth problem at all.

    Note the SD card dongle is for READING camera data ONLY and does not
    write, removing the threat that some smartass maxiPad owner downloads
    Avatar from some website, storing it off the maxiPad so he can play it
    on his mac over ATTWS' "unlimited" data usage $30 account.

    This pig is all hobbled up just like iPhone....to LIMIT bandwidth on
    ATTWS.

    No programming, no root access, no loading your own programs off the SD
    card dongle, etc., etc......

    Another Apple Box Office Device the consumer is expected to pay for.
    App sales
    Content sales
    Book sales
    Music sales
    all controlled by the CLOUD.

    when did you try one? oh right, you didn't, you're just spewing again.

    > No programming,


    what's the sdk for then? how did the 140,000 apps get written?

    > no root access,


    what do you need to do that requires root?

    there's plenty of storage in the device itself and additional apps can
    be downloaded at any time. no need for cards.

    You can currently use a jailbroken iPhone as a wireless router and
    tether whatever you want to the 3G network. I'm sure that AT&T has
    insisted that Apple make this impossible on the iPad as a condition of
    the $30 unlimited 3G service.
