"Apple has lately faced growing criticism for continuing to charge for MobileMe at a time when Google can promise free e-mail, calendars and contacts synchronized online for Android phones where the iPhone is still at least partly reliant on a physical sync without paying $99 per year. The company has recently been working on a North Carolina data center that could help scale such plans in the future."
Fast forward to this weekend when Mac-centric website MacRumors.com released more evidence that Apple is still considering providing at least some of the MobileMe services for free to iOS users.
In the latest iOS 4.2 and 4.2.1 builds of iOS, MacRumors has discovered error messages in the operating system that read "MOBILEME_CREATE_UNAVAILABLE_IPAD" = "The maximum number of free accounts have been activated on this iPad."
Naturally, Apple has not confirmed their plans to launch an new MobileMe services. Many believe that an new MobileMe service would go into effect once Apple's new $1 billion North Carolina data center is fully ramped up and is online.
