No idea about iphone and various plans. I am happy with my prepaid cell phone.
But there is rumor that Apple will announce a smaller ipad. I am used to tugging my ipad around with me although the model I have done 3G.
And star, even without WiFi mall, here in the city, you can walk in any Safeway or Fry's (a Kroger family supermarket which has a different name in Utah), where they usually have a cafe attached and nobody around with WiFi connection.
This is what I am doing now.
