We will see... 6 day's till Macworld.

Ah, but it wouldn't be an iPod. A 7-9 inch iPhone would still be quite portable. With a headset it would be perfect for phone calls. It would still be light weight enough to pop in your purse (my purse ... you probably don't carry one). The larger screen would make web browsing easy. The larger keyboard would make two handed typing much easier. You could read on it, watch video on it with better resolution.

So what if it is priced more than most netbooks? People would still line up around the block to get one. I know I would. And, because I actively hate Apple ... when I say I would buy one, that should count for something. That would be the portable computer of my dreams! But, it would have to (and I mean HAVE TO) have 3G rather than just Wifi capability.
