Apple's iPad tablet and AT&T
I've been following CNET's live blog about the Apple's release of the iPad tablet , and generally everything that's been annouced so far has been positive and intriguing -- until I saw this tidbit that makes me laugh somewhat:
11:14 a.m.: A "real breakthrough" he says. Two plans: 250MB of data every month for $15.
The second plan: unlimited plan for $30 per month. AT&T is the provider.
Free use of AT&T Wi-Fi hotspots included too.
Is 250MB a typo by the author? Given that they are pushing the iPad as a method of viewing video and similar content -- 250MB worth of data seems like a ridiculously low limit for a viable internet access plan!! All in all, such a limited plan would seem to be merely a precursor to some obscene overage charges which would ultimately push the user to upgrade to the more expensive plan. Why even have the $15 plan (unless there is a way to automatically prevent overage charges once that limit is reached)?
That said, I'm not really sure AT&T's 3G network is up to the task of handling the increased internet traffic that this device will surely generate. Also, it would be nice if AT&T would give users a discount of some sort if they already have an iPhone data plan.
