Mobile Update for October 13, 2008

Tomorrow.  10am PST on Apple's campus.  We'll see new Macbooks.  Given the leaks on the Web, it's nothing surprising.  What reminds to find tomorrow is how much and when we'll get it.  I'm  hoping for $800 but $900 is probably the lowest it'll go.  Realistically, a $100 drop is more likely.  Still, if we get LED and a much improved graphic processor, that a win-win.

Also, we're following the class action lawsuit against the wireless providers for sky-roOnxo's links herecketing cost of texting.  Well, that's what I see as well far as far costs goes.  However, the evil ones beg to differ.  Do we expect anything less from them?  I hope they get creamed.  I do have to say that T-Mobile's 3G deal for the G1 is pretty good.

The third ongoing issues we're following is FCC's approval of use of white space for a deployment of a wireless network, hopefully independent of the wireless providers or any single entity.  Onxo's  here .
