    Mmmm... If that's gonna be a 4G tablet running Honeycomb, etc. (and coming very soon), then I wonder who'd still buy the 3G Samsung Galaxy Tab running Froyo, etc. unless there's a substantial price diff.


    Hmmm... Has Verizon even said anything about a (potential) pricing diff for 4G access vs 3G? I forgot about that possibility in considering waiting for a 4G smartphone.

    Judging by their pricing for their MiFi options, seems like there's probably no real diff in pricing although they might require the higher unlimited data plan (vs the 1/2-price 150MB/month plan) since they currently do not offer the lowest (2GB/month) option for 4G MiFi.


    Realistically, if you're gonna want/use 4G speed, there's probably no chance you'd stay w/in the 150MB/month limit of the 1/2-price plan anyway.

    There isn't much of this year left though. The question is what exactly will Motorola be releasing early next year in light of this recent demo? Will it just be another Gingerbread tablet that's less impressive than that demo? OR will that demo-ed tablet be their first (w/ probably later release date like spring time around when the next iteration of iPad is expected)? There still doesn't seem to be any definite info on that yet.
