    I don't understand why you feel sorry for us WiFi people. People buy what they want and think what will best suite them. Would I have liked to wait for 3G? Sure. The chance of me ever using the 3G, slim-to-none, especially since I have an iPhone 3GS and can tether for free whenever.

    But, you definitely shouldn't feel sorry for me. Everyone picked their own choice.

    ^He was being sarcastic (sorta). He didn't mention anything about the merits of 3G or Wifi. He's just using reverse psychology on himself to help the time go by faster :D

    Yeah he was being sarcastic. He's saying he feels bad for Non-3G people because they won't have to wait as long as he does (which is a good thing for Non-3G people).

    Yet again, sarcasm lost on the Internet. LMFAO!

    Oh well, my bad I guess :). Have a great day all!

    And good thing it will be temporary. Because once we have the 3G in our hands, we will be in a better position in the long run.

    ...at least until the upgrade comes along:D

    Well again, it all depends on usage features. Like I said, I would like to have a 3G, but other than that, they are exact equals :). So when your reading an ebook, have comfort in the fact that us WiFi'ers can do the same thing. And I'll be tethering with my iPhone 3GS :).

    Already have an iPhone 3GS.

    Besides, I'm sure I'll get a 3G iPad at some point, then pass my 64GB WiFi-only model on to the wife/kids. :)

    I've decided that actually media will be really important, so I went with the 64GB Wifi instead of the 3G 32GB and examined situations in my life. For instance, when I was on vacation in Amsterdam last year, I had a sim card for my iPhone. 10 Euro, unlimited internet. I took a train to Paris. Guess what that 3G did for me? Nada. Cause I'd have to get a SIM in every country. Instead of having the 3G I'd have plenty of movies and shows to watch on that long 4 hour train ride. :).

    Also, a bunch of my 3G use in my mind was in the car as a passenger. The reality is, I'm never the passenger and always the driver :). So I'm set there. I have a 10 minute commute via driving so no use there.

    So I'm pretty comfortable in my choice of WiFi over 3G.

    Why gets the 3G's when I can tether fo free with me Palm Pre, you see?

    (I wanted to rhyme, want to fight about it?)

    If you live in 3G area, I think the 3G version is a decent decision. It might also be nice while traveling.

    However, I could not wait.
