    the Cr-48s will come with 100MB of free data over 3G every month for two years through Verizon in the US
    100MB? Seriously? Or 100GB?

    I could use 100MB on normal (i.e. no videos) web browsing in a day, never mind a month.. of running a cloud OS.

    Well you aren't 'running' the OS in the cloud, but I agree with your point. 100MB is limited, but it's free. If you want more, you can pay, but a lot of people will be OK with that much over 3G in a month.

    Remember US mobile contracts tend to be a bit more limited than ours too, so by their standards 100MB (for free) isn't too bad.

    True, and I guess you can't complain at free. Plus most people will be using WiFi most of the time I suppose.
