The iPad 3G (a phone-less device) is coming out in days, but the Motorola Marco Newton OS Device is the last product running an Apple OS with a built-in data-only tower wireless network (as far as I can tell).  I really enjoyed playing with these on the ARDIS network back in the mid-1990s (along with the Sony Magic Link-sister the Motorola Envoy).  I almost bought the Envoy actually, I think it was like $1,500, but the biggest issue was how expensive that data network was for monthly service.

If you have one, or used one regularly, perhaps you could write-in here to share your memories before Apple brings this new device on board.
