That's 10 hours in AAPL time.

Here's what they say about the iPhone:

Quote:
Talk time:
Up to 12 hours on 2G
Up to 5 hours on 3G
Standby time: Up to 300 hours

Internet use:
Up to 5 hours on 3G
Up to 9 hours on Wi-Fi
Video playback: Up to 10 hours
Audio playback: Up to 30 hours

You know anybody who gets that?

well, he can't control pirating and honestly, music/music industry kinda sucks so they killed themselves. NYT, WashPo etc etc are looking for ways to monetize their content, it's not like they or most magazines are going to get subscriber growth. If it does not save them, it will delay their eventual death.

I use my Iphone for internet and would say that the 5 hours is accurate, if not actually lower than reality.

In my eyes "free wireless," like the Kindle, was a requirement. Apple has released the new Macbook Air.

if yuo have WiFi at home or are at a starbucks, you can use the WiFi for free, no need for a data plan. the reality is, this thing pretty much serves teh needs of 95% of laptop users, other than the occasional foray into Excel/Windows, whatever I do on my laptop I can do on this. Wherever I am.

You are finally beginning to understand the big picture.
We will not stop short of total world domination.

Changing the World. One person at a time.

Limited data plans are for children and rubes. This thing is so massively fail. I pity the fools who buy one.

Starbucks WiFi is free only with AT&T plan, right? And see, that's the problem: everyone has an exception. I'd get this except I'm sure it doesn't allow for BitTorrent. Others will say Photoshop, Logic, gaming...whatever. I think that, in the buildup to the iPad, everyone's oversimplified what people do on their laptops. This thing can't replace a laptop, and it's too big to replace a smartphone. That leaves us at "people who want a third device and have $500 to spend on one." Good for them! Regardless, this thing will sell based solely on price. Or, as Conne put it:

You can't even multi task in these. The question is, those who may want these probably already have a laptop so why buy it? If you already have an ipone and a macbook, whats the point of the ipad? If you have a netbook, whats the point of ipad?

I wish they had this when I was in college. I would have happily got all my text books on it.
