In a word: yes. I'll either decide I don't need 3G/GPS (since I have my iPhone in my pocket) or I'll pass the Wi-Fi model to someone else in my family or sell on eBay. Something along those lines. I'm really hoping I decide I can live without 3G/GPS. But we'll see.I really would like the 3G, mostly for the GPS. But it would be nice to have an iPad on April 3....
What to do? Buy two?!
Or you could get a Mifi. I think your rationale makes sense.I was going to wait for the 3G one but eventually decided that $120 for a feature I'd use rarely probably isn't worth it. There's wifi at home, at work and even on the bus I ride to work. For those occasions wifi isn't available I have my iPhone.
Apple has a 14 day return policyWirelessly posted (Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; U; CPU iPhone OS 3_1_2 like Mac OS X; en-us) AppleWebKit/528.18 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/4.0 Mobile/7D11 Safari/528.16)
My fear is with Apple's 30 day return policy that they release the 3g version 31 or so days after the initial version. Just my 0.02.
I completely agree. You have to ask yourself: Am I going to buy 2? or if both were released the same day which one would I get? And if 3G is the answer, then I think living with a year of regret vs. 30 days of waiting for the 3G is a big burden.In the end, if anyone is buying wifi just so they can get the device in their hands, they'll soon have buyer's remorse wants the 3G hits the streets.
I totally can understand people who opt for the wifi because that's all they need. What is puzzing is that those who'll want the 3G but instead go for the wifi because its available sooner will only regret their decision.
btw, I am choosing to wait as I'll buy the 3G. I've waited this long for the iPad, another few weeks will matter less.
It's not a simple replacement for built in 3G, but rather an alternative for someone who has multiple devices that require cell based internet. It's not cheap, but I challenge you, even with multiple devices, to use more than 5GB of data (if you're not torrenting).The monthly rate on mifi is TERRIBLE... furthermore, they don't even offer unlimited!
How does the 5gb cap seem to work for everyone?Exactly. I got a Wi-Fi iPad and a Verizon Mi-fi
The monthly cap is what is holding me off. Is it really difficult to go over in a month?It's not a simple replacement for built in 3G, but rather an alternative for someone who has multiple devices that require cell based internet.
