Mobile: it's all about cost of ownership

@DavidJohnson of Poynter asks:

How much media could you buy for $1,189? That's the first-year cost to own the top-of-line 3G iPad before buying any content to view on it.

That's 60 books or DVDs (at an average of $20 apiece), 119 movie tickets ($10), 238 magazines at the newsstand ($5 apiece), or 24 AAA games for the Xbox 360 or a similar console (at an average of $50 apiece).

I say same for an iPhone, which goes for $2,500+ over two years. Wifi plus voice is where we are moving.
