Carrier services are expected to be offered free while things like YouTube would cost 50 cents monthly.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 48 2010

Welcome to the latest edition of the SlashGear Week in Review! Apple rejected an app for inclusion on the App Store this week because it was a magazine app about Android. The publisher of the app said that the person at Apple he spoke with said, "You know… your magazine. It’s just about Android…. we can’t have that in our App Store."
