Yes ... the XBox360 version of Internet Explorer does indeed require a Gold level membership on XBox Live.

Fail, although I might be willing to buy one if it's only an incremental cost over the chatpad.

Source?

It's not possible to reveal the source here, otherwise I'd be breaching the NDA.

Wow. Something that would have been awesome when I got an xbox in 2006 but now that I can browse most web sites on my phone it just seems much less significant.

I think you're making the wrong comparison. If you're browsing something that it pleasant to view on the phone, this isn't where a browser on your console fits, though it has the option to view mobile site versions. I wouldn't compare it to browsing at your PC. I would compare it to wanting to browse while you're sitting in front of your home theatre or TV and want to browse. Or for those with a console and Internet, but no PC and no smartphone. Regular cheap flip and candybar phones still outnumber smartphones by a humongous margin.
