Sure, but what I find more interesting is that Apple also ironically created the most promising open web app platform, which may eventually undermine the App Store itself. [...] The iPad is the first mainstream device which combines all of the following factors: reasonably powerful hardware, a (potentially) huge user base, a mature WebKit implementation, and constant 3G internet capabilities. All the dominoes are in place, and I think that the iPad will knock the first one down."

In Europe, things should be much better for 3G. My immediate reaction when they announced their “breakthrough” pricing for 3G was “ARE THEY INSANE!?”. Is America _really_ that backwater!?
