    Most of it sounds like marketing waffle. A totally seamless unified user experience!!

    In other words...

    Apple to AT&T: Can you please actually have your network not go down every other day?

    AT&T to Apple: Is it possible your phones would actually pick up our signals like everyone else's phones do?

    :D

    Nice set of rumors. This 3G netbook sounds very spicy... I wonder if it will come with a reasonable data services price also.

    Well, if AT&T has their hands on the netbook, this would pretty much confirm that the apple tablet/netbook is giant iPod touch, not a tiny MacBook.

    I will get probably both.

    They will not release iPhone in June along side Netbook. Its all cycles.

    I think it's more "boygenius" that is responsible for the communication issues here. Can't really blame Apple or AT&T for something that is being released by an uninvolved 3rd party that could be pulling rabbits out of their butts....:eek:

    And what is the title header "att new iphone will be hot son!" suppose to mean????

    Still with the physical keyboard? Two years of Apple saying they will not add one and people just can't leave it alone?

    I hope Apple doesn't add a slide out QWERTY keyboard to the iPhone. That would really suck.

    They've also taken the same stand on MMS and look where we are now. I'm not saying they'll add one, but I've given up on trying to guess what they will and won't do.

    and that's also a software update.... a whole lot easier than a hardware redesign.

    why? AT&T already sells a complete Acer Aspire One netbook with AT&T 3g card for $99 at Radio Shack, but of course it requires a long and expensive contract. Why couldn't Apple do the same thing?

    Apple also said over and over again that we would never have video on an iPod; now look where we are - not only video but touchscreen as well. Apple has a long history of denying something as dumb and stupid, and then coming out with exactly what they denied. It is a long standing tradition at Apple.

    Subsidized Apple Netbook?

    AT&T subsidizes $400 per iphone right? So that would put the retail price at about $500, which seems ridiculously cheap for an Apple device.

    A 16gb iPod Touch goes for $300. With 3G networking, bigger screen, keyboard, and bigger form factor, I'd expect more than another $200 added to the retail price.

    A $600 iPhone OS tablet with a 10" multitouch screen...I can see a lot of people buying that, especially with a carrier subsidy.

    Then it must be all about money because I would like one of these but not have it tied to a monthly subscription.

    Maybe Apple will release it at a higher price like the iPod Touches, but if you get it from AT&T with a monthly data contract then it only sells for $99 because AT&T will recoup from the monthly fees.

    dongmin, looks like I just dumbed down what you said :)
