Due to the recent posts about people having their sim cards disabled for use in the ideos7 tablet by T-mobile it got me thinking. And it prompted a discussion between a friend and myself. He was thinking that tablets use more data then phones and so cell phone companies want to be able to charge for that. I disagreed saying that you are limited in bandwidth by your connection (eg. 3g service) and so a tablet isn't going to be able to download any more data than a phone in that regards. I think you should be able to switch a sim card (I don't have one since I am with Sprint) from device to device since you are paying for a data plan with a phone company regardless of which phone you choose or device you load it into. Now if the device controlled the bandwidth that would be a different story.....and so I think his estiimation is wrong. Now to my question have any of you measured or quantified the data you downloaded and compared it in regards to a cell phone? Am I correct in my thinking that a tablet cannot download any more data than a phone? Is the "packet a phone downloads to play a movie any different in size than the "packet" a tablet would download? Or is the info the same just scaled to match the screen size by whatever device is using it? Sorry for the long post! And hopefully it makes sense.
