    You can, just swap the SIMs. Granted, the idea of only one native SIM per line apply, but there's nothing holding you back from swapping a SIM from device to device. So long as the devices' data plans are compatible, that is.

    And, as long as your carrier uses GSM and not CDMA... like my Verizon... D'oh!

    Not sure why, but AT&T doesn't do well in the tablet market, at least around here. Perhaps it's the data caps and/or lack of any accessories/equipment for the devices...who knows. I'm up for picking one of these up though. A nice 'lil discount will make it easy.
    Got a buddy that works in the Apple store. He says Verizon iPads don't sell at all, and AT&T iPads fly off the shelves as soon as they are available (mostly international people buying them).

    I can see a guy in his home or actual office with a headset/bluetooth or something of the sort. Not as a primary phone, but at least using it...

    We sell out of iPads regularly.




    Because we get two in stock per month -~-

    I never said that. I said he worked at an apple store, where they happen to sell both AT&T and Verizon iPads.

    They also obviously get a lot more than 2/month

    Update: No update. According to Acer, there is no 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich planned for the A501 tablet. The A500 will receive theirs starting April 27th.
