If they had this 2.5 yrs ago I likely never would've bought an iPhone. All I originally wanted was an iPod touch with a data plan, I was content with my Sprint phone. This would be a big seller for Apple since I think many are like I was, want data w/o the phone. Especially if you can easily switch the sim card or by other means use it when traveling out of the US and can still get data n use skype for calls.

I don't get your comment, who says there will be a non-3G version? My guess is they'll all have data. We'll see soon enough.

And you know how and where he and everyone would use it? A lot of people would use skype and/or FaceTime at home where they can plug it in or maybe people will have easy access to a charger via their car, work computer, etc. We don't all use things as you - we are individuals.
