    Hey all,

    As a UK resident, I'm very jealous of the fact that you guys are going to be getting your hands on the iPad 2 *tomorrow*! Gutted we have to wait another two weeks.

    I currently have a 32gb iPad with wifi only, is it worth upgrading to a wifi + 3G? I figured that seeing as I have 3G on my iPhone there was really no need for it on the iPad too, bust if I'm going to upgrade I may swell do it properly, right?

    im getting a 3G version despite the fact that i'll be tethering it to my iPhone so i'm not paying for two data plans when i only need one. the only reason why i'm getting the 3G version is because it has GPS. the GPS receivers are built into the 3G chip, thus the WiFi only iPads lack GPS.
