    Hi,

    I'm just curious if there would be any draw backs to using a wifi only iPad with tethering to having the wifi + 3G model? Are there going to be any apps I'm not going to be able to get the most of?

    Thanks.

    I can't see why any app would be unable to get the most out of a 3G connection wether it's tethered or native on the device.

    I was originally going to get a wifi + 3G iPad 2 but since the hotspot feature will work with AT&T on day one I'm just going to get a wifi only iPad.

    THe only thing to worry about is battery usage on the IP4 when tethering. It will drain quite quickly.
