AT&T says the upcoming iPad will be mainly used by those surfing the web using Wi-Fi. The Apple device will be offered in just Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi/3G models.
“My expectation is that there’s not going to be a lot of people out there looking for another subscription,” AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson said during a webcast of an investor conference on Tuesday — as reported by “Macworld UK” (http://www.macworld.co.uk/digitallifestyle/news/index.cfm?newsid=3214048).
Stephenson said the iPad will be a mainly Wi-Fi driven product. He thinks users will use it mostly around the home or taking advantage of free Wi-Fi spots offered by coffee shops, restaurants, etc.
