Ah so more like a tweet. Got it.
I'm sure people would like it if you opened your door, grabbed the box, and opened it. You know, something of substance.

Got rid of fakebook over a year ago. Facebook is a real waste of time. I tend to keep in contact with the people I am close with anyway, which negates its underlying purpose.

Like MySpace, Fakebook is a fad.

Screen is no retina but the style and weight is just unbelievable.

This is just what I wanted. Something I can take with me, with cellular data and I will use a flip phone for calls.

Now, if only apple can bring out something the same size as the Samsung Note, which would be the best of both worlds.

----------

This is going to be a hit this Christmas - end of story.

Same as the rest of the world it would seem. Edmonton here waiting for the end of November, since we all know Late November = the 30th..

Where is Achmed the Dead Terrorist when you need him. Maybe he did kill that Verizon bastard and that's why you don't get LTE?

I've noticed the cellular shows up as 3G while you are setting up the account. But the minute the account is setup and paid the data speed changes to LTE (assuming you are in an LTE area).

I can confirm that hotspot works on the prepaid for the Verizon iPad mini's as well. It is the main reason I went with it over AT&T since I have unlimited data on my AT&T iPhone and can't use the hotspot.
