OmniSky Discriminates Against iPaq Users

from the pay-up,-rich-bastards dept

OmniSky has apparently decided that iPaq owners are a bit more wealthy than Palm or Jordana users. They’re going to charge significantly more per month for their wireless modem service. OmniSky claims that “research” shows that iPaq users log in more frequently than Palm or Jordana users, and are more likely to use the device as a laptop replacement. That could be, but there’s also the possibility that OmniSky needs money, and this seemed like the easiest way to raise prices.
