Everyone is hesitating: shall I buy the iPad WiFi only version or the iPad which has 3G as well? I can't determine how you live and I can't decide what iPad (WiFi-only or WiFi+3G) you are going to buy but I can help as much as I can. Why (not) to choose for the iPad 3G... GPS and cellular in the iPad 3G The iPad 3G includes a GPS and is able to connect to a 3G network. If you are travelling a lot and you are planning to use your iPad about everywhere - for example in a car or at work - than the ability to have internet everywhere would be great. If you are planning to use your iPad as a big TomTom, than GPS would be nice as well. Note that your iPad will increase in size: in height about 0,3 milimetre and in width about 0,1 milimetre. Personal living situation: 'WiFi everywhere' Think about your personal living situation. There's a big chance you've got WiFi at home where you will probably use it most of the time. When you go somewhere else, there will probably be an open WiFi network (like at the Mc Donalds, but also just in cities). And what about work? There probably is WiFi too over there. And let's assume you've got a smartphone with internet acces. If you are travelling in, let's say, a car. What will you do earlier? Get your iPad to check a webpage, or quickly get your smartphone to browse the web. You probably won't browse the web all the time, but you will also use apps... and not all of them require an internet connection. This is a quote I posted earlier in a topic over here, which goes further into this. The black strip This will be different for each and everyone of us. Some may like the black strip on the iPad, and others may not like. You might think about the 'good old times' when the iPhone was just launched. Just remember that this black strip is also visible at the front of your iPad. The price: $15 or $30 for internet on GRPS, EDGE and 3G No contract. Just $15 or $30 a month for 250 mb and unlimited internet. Internet everywhere for a solid price without a contract. Everywhere you will find internet with this cheap 3G plan. And if there's no 3G, than you will fall back on EDGE and if necessary even GRPS. The price for the iPad 3G: +$130. To get 3G and GPS you need to pay an extra $130. This is pretty expensive, especially when you compare it like this: If you want to have GPS and 3G (number 3) than you should pay another $130 to model number 1 but that's without doubling the capacity. If you leave out 3G and GPS, but you pay 'just' another $100 you will double the capacity (number 2). Re-sale value If you are planning to get iPad Revision 2 (R2) next year, than you will probably sell your iPad. You will get more money for a WiFi+3G model than for a WiFi-only model. Though, you should think about the fact if people are willing to pay for it next year. No nation wide coverage Remember you won't find 3G all through-out the nation. Sure, when there's no 3G the connection it might fall back on EDGE or GRPS but are you willing to wait a long time to load an internet webpage? EDGE and GRPS are really slow compared to 3G and 3G-coverage isn't very good yet. So, what iPad model should I get? That's totally up to you. Again: look at your personal situation. There's WiFi kinda everywhere now a days, and what will you do faster? Get your smartphone and browse the web, or your iPad while you're travelling? You should decide for your self, but I hope you now have 'a better vision' on what to do.
