So for this thread, let's assume the following conditions for the iPad 2: 1. Apple DOES NOT keep their current iPad format (i.e. GSM only iPad for AT&T, Mi-Fi hotspot needed for Verizon) 2. Apple DOES NOT release a world mode iPad capable of running on any network. 3. Apple DOES release two separate iPads, a CDMA version and a GSM version. Also, both AT&T and Verizon offer identical pricing plans. Now, I personally think the next iPad will be world mode, because I think Apple would prefer to just sell one device. However, I'd like to hear some discussion based on the three assumptions above. If those 3 things happen, and there are 2 separate iPads released, which one would be better? Essentially, what are the pros and cons of both CDMA and GSM iPads? Which one would you be better off getting? I want to preorder my iPad 2 the minute its announced because I want to get it as soon as possible, and I think it's best to be prepared in advance. I, like many, don't want to sit there in that moment trying to decide CDMA or GSM. So what do you guys think? Take into account, like I said above, the fact that we're going to assume both companies offer identical data plans. Which is better?
