    Just speculation but with a 3G connection (unlimited/250 mb):

    1. Will there still be a 10 mb limit on apps from the app store still?

    2. Will youtube look like crap, even more so now that it's on a bigger screen and possibly degraded due to being on 3G.

    Unlimited is only good if they don't artificially cap it with every app. I can see maybe offering a choice but this isn't a phone even though it can connect to a cellular data network so I don't really see a reason to limit it in this way. At least there's no contract; which is what they used to pay the subsidies on the phone so I get why they cap stuff.

    I'd hate to imagine a nice 10 inch screen with unwatchable videos just because you aren't on wifi.

    Awesome points, and reinforces my tethering to iPad via iPhone will be the best solution.

    I don't think anyone knows until they get their hands on one.

    You are paying the same amount as you are for the iPhone data plan so I expect the data restrictions to be the same.

    Youtube HD is supported http://www.apple.com/ipad/features/

    YouTube HD is only supported via wifi. Jobs said so in the keynote.

    i believe the iPad will be jailbreak-able. This will open the door to more potential buyers than if it wasn't. Your avg consumers won't care but others will. How fast it can be JB'd is another story.
