Another rumor making waves this morning, is that MobileMe will soon be free, this comes from sightings of changes to the Account Type statuses of Apple‚Äôs MobileMe members. Instead of being labeled as an Individual subscriber accounts are now labeled with Full Member. The changes have occurred on both single license and multiple license family-pack accounts.
It would be a good thing for Apple, many have left MobileMe over the pricing many of it's features can be found for free elsewhere. Many users expect seamless, automatic syncing on smart devices as a matter of course.
It would certainly be another front on the battle with Google, which lets you sync contacts from Gmail with the iPhone.
