DISCUSSION

@yoshi: While the basic concept of just adding 3G support to the Touch is a good one to the consumer, ultimately the hardware would need to be the same as the iPhone to support it. Therefore, there is no real savings to Apple to pursue that. Just buy an iPhone and sign up for a data-only plan with AT&T and call it a day.

Alternatively, buy a Touch and use WiFi and Skype for phone calls. (I recognize the limitations, but am tossing this out as an idea that others have used.) My only concern with this is the concept Apple has with feeling compelled to nickel and dime Touch owners for any application they give for free to iPhone customers.
