    I have a 16 fb iPad 2, 16 gb iPhone 4s and 32 gb iPod touch 4th gen. I'm really torn about whether or not I will use the 4g that much since I use my iPhone mainly on the go. The extra storage is tempting, but I have done pretty good with space on my 4s and iPad 2. Thoughts?

    You shouldn't really compare two models and two storage capabilities.
    It would be better to say 16gb wifi vs 16 gb LTE
    32gb wifi or 32gb LTE

    with that in mind, I would say 32gb LTE for the awesome speed, and tons of space for apps (remember apps optimized for retina will take more space)

    Do you have unlimited data on your phone still? If not, I'd go with the 32 wifi and tether through bluetooth to your phone. You may find yourself needing more storage on the iPad if you do any of the subscriptions or magazine apps like Time, People, etc.

    I'd love to, but I can't afford the 32gb LTE model.

    I'd get the 32GB.

    I went with 16Gb LTE. But that's cuz I don't have an iPhone or other smartphone to tether. I would never pay for 2 data plans. Otherwise, I would have gotten the 32Gb WIFI.

    To one of the previous posters: this is a valid comparison as the dollar amount is similar.

    I only have 2gb per month on my Iphone. I haven't even gotten close to filling it up though.

    If the $100 is a deal breaker maybe you should rethink getting the new iPad completely.

    Get the LTE version I use my 3G version every day and it comes in handy when we travel and the hotel has no wifi or charges $15 aday for access
