Honestly, here is what you should do:

Offer to chip in for an iPhone 4 with him...nothing much, maybe $50 and have him pay the rest which will probably end up being much less than $600. IMO, an iPhone will be much more useful for him in the long run.
LOL.
Yup. Apple is basically admitting that its an over-sized iphone as its not powerful enough to even be considered an underpowered Tablet PC.

Thats a good idea Sky as atleast then he could phone someone with it...and prolly have enough left over for a PSP or Nintendo DS or etc etc etc

Glorified ipoood touch for 6 bills that you cant even easily swap out the battery in when the battery dies...or even access a good chunk of web as it uses that nasty old flash tech. Driver you should ask your borther how he expects to watch all his fav youtube videos without Flash. ;)
