    If this applies to wifi reception too then I'm definitely getting the 3g version. My wifi experience has been awful with my current iPad.

    The way I read that, it's for 3G only. And, if they improved the WiFi performance between the two models, there would be trouble! :D

    If the 3G version offers better WiFi reception, that makes the extra $130 worth it.

    If you read the article the OP linked, you will see that, "Just like the iPad Wi-Fi, there are two antennas that handle Wi-Fi / Bluetooth connectivity, one in the Apple logo and another to the left of the dock connector."

    All iPads have the same Wi-Fi antenna placement / functionality.

    Whoops, using the LCD frame... thread title fixed. And this for 3G only and for the 3G signal only. Nothing to do with wifi
