If you watch a lot of streaming video on YouTube, then you're screwed. 2GB would give you a max of about 2 movies, assuming each movie is about 1 hr. 30 min. I guess now you can't just hand over your phone to your kids and let them watch video. With the iPad and HD2 or Evo being advertised as multimedia devices, I don't think users would be happy with a limited data plan.

It's Time to Let Mobile Websites Die

It's Time to Let Mobile Websites Die

A couple years ago, before the arrival of Apple's innovative and groundbreaking iPhone, it used to make sense to have mobile versions of websites. Back then, bandwidth on mobile phones were limited and mobile browsers weren''t capable of displaying the full web.
