    I'm all for this, providing the package isn't going to be as financially prohibitive as the iPhone.

    What a load of poop. All these deals came with silly prices. When you look at contract length and price your paying, you'd be better buying the free gift and having a cheaper contract....

    Its a new way for people to get laptops and stuff on a buy now pay later but through a mobile phone contract.

    Yep, spot on Brewster - it's just a more "pub-anecdotally" acceptable way to kid ourselves into thinking it's really not that expensive after all and laud over others, who haven't skinted themselves out on the same deal.

    Hope Mac do come out with a real netbook though - They already produce laptops, media players and 3G phones - so the hybrid will have some pedigree. I have a feeling that if they are making a proper new product for this it might be fun.
