Good.Sony should keep up with it's updates to penetrate US market

Why would Sony even go through a carrier for a tablet? They could make a few tablet models that work on a huge number of carriers, like Apple does, and then sell direct.
It seems there is some collusion going on to make sure companies other than Apple pay a "tax" to be able to sell tablets that come with cellular data in the US.

Apple being an American company and the other not may have something to do with it. Just a guess though.

It wouldn't surprise me. Almost all large American corporations are actually owned by a very small number of wealthy people and managed collectively through board of director relationships.

FYI when ordering from a mobile phone, you are able to use Verizon Edge, which puts it at $30/mo for 20 months. I placed an order and it went through just fine with nothing being due up front. We'll see if they cancel the order... Looking at their FAQ, it says tablets are not eligible. Maybe they are changing it up with this device.
