LG and Apple team together for Apple netbook?

Looks like the rumors of Apple netbook are not going to die until the Apple finally release their over-talked about netbook. According to the latest rumor, LG is going to make OLED displays for the Apple’s netbook. The new rumor may not be so true as the last time, when we heard about the Apple netbook, the Quanta was given the contract to make them. So, from where did the LG came into play?

These rumors are surely going to make the Apple think about making a netbook now, incase they have not given a thought about it until now.

..and You Thought the iPhone 3G was cheaper :/

The original iPhone came with $499 and $599 price tags. Then came the iPhone 3G, which was introduced with lower price tags than it’s elder brother, $199 and $299.

Over the course of a two-year contract, the original iPhone user paid $1,839 for hardware and monthly fees. For the iPhone 3G, it comes out to be $1999 for a two-year contract!

The iPhone 3G also comes with exchange support. A catch is there too! While the windows mobile and blackberry users do not have to pay anything for the exchange support, iPhone 3G users will have to pay additional $15 for that.

..so much for being cheaper :o
