I think we all may have severely over looked something about the Tablet/Carriers

    What if Apple announces a Tablet that downloads ebooks similar to how Amazon's Kindle Downloads them. One price, no monthly plan for the basic model. Hear me out, what if:

    Basic Tablet Model ("unlocked")
    -Wifi only (has 3G connection), but with over the air downloads for ebooks anywhere. And has the option to get a bigger data plan with it. (Similar to an unlocked device.)
    -A Little more money than a Tablet subsidized with legit data plan.

    Locked
    -Basic 30 dollars a month data plan with carrier of your choice (verizon or AT&T)

    Pure speculation, but Apple could do something like this. Like an iPod touch with limited over the air downloads restricted to eBooks.

    I don't see Apple doing free wireless service like the Kindle. If it has 3G connectivity, you are going to have to pay a monthly fee.

    I like the idea. I really believe that Apple would be foolish to keep this locked to AT&T (which I really don't believe they're going to do).

    I don't think I'd ever get one but I'd surely be going after the "unlocked" option if I did.
