I have been on both ends of the iPad spectrum and now am the owner of a 16 GB wifi only and 32 GB wifi+3G model and must report that if you seriously are considering the iPad go with 3G. I mainly used my iPad at work since I live a good 15 minutes away and traffic can make my trip anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour, hence I am left with free time if traffic permits. So I'd bring the iPad to surf and read mags/books. Occasionally I'd use it in the car to look up something on the fly. But still I did so using mywi, which dispite being incredible and reliable it is nothing like the zippiness of the 3G. No connecting bar, just info <bam> right there. My gf and I recently went to Galveston this weekend and I propped the iPad near the dash and used the gps to navigate around town. It was perfect. She uses my old wifi model and is now addicted to plants vs. Zombies. Anyway, I like having the iPad as a fully functional stand alone device and think it is somewhat crippled without the 3G. Yeah, AT&T rapes with e plan, but I think going wifi only is the same as investing in the current itouch and claiming it is almost the same as the 3GS. Anyway, just some food for thought for those of you wondering which way to go. Enjoy!
