Do you guys think if I bought a Droid or a Palm Pre that I could tether and get the same speeds as I would get if I had bought the 3G version of the iPad? The reason I am curious is because the monthly rate would be the same. $30 is the fee for having a smartphone on Verizon and you get unlimited internet. It also costs $30 for an iPad 3G plan with AT&T. I'm thinking I could turn the Droid or definitely the Palm Pre into a hotspot and use internet that way. My question is, are the speeds going to be the same or similar? I live in an area where I get better Verizon coverage than AT&T anyway, so I thought it might be worth a consideration and just skip the 3G version and get a Wifi version.
