    So if I have a data package for my iPhone 3GS and i do the DIY trick to make it a microSIM I still need to sign up for ANOTHER data plan? It doesn't just share it? Even if i happen to work for a company that supports the iPhone and I have unlimited data on my device?

    Damn you all to Hades!!! I gots to wait another month or so, being as I'm in old Europe.

    Seriously though, have lotsa fun. Hope any problems are ironed out within a month and that there's still a jailbreak to use.

    Anyone clocked the d/l time with 3G, so can compare with the MyWi posting above. It's a €170 question.

    Is the iBooks app rocking good times?

    ABC app doesn't work on 3G.. Well.. That's why I tell people.. If you got an iPad, get the WiFi version.. and you'll most likely have an iPhone (if you don't too bad! ) and just jailbreak it, get MyWi, create HotSpot and use the 3G off your iPhone to surf with the iPad.. No restrictions since the iPad will show it's on WiFi.. I do everything like that, watch Netflix, ABC app.. Works perfect and probably identical to the iPad 3G..

    Yes, digital books are revolutionary man. They are THE REASON to buy a handful of iPads, didn't you hear?

    In all seriousness, I think you can answer the question yourself. Do you like to read? Is reading a rockin' good time? Depending on how you answered my last two questions, you can probably come up with an answer to yours.

    But the iPad 3G is more expensive, therefore it is better, and we all need the best. If not, we aren't cool enough right?

    I'd be interested to hear how many people bought the Wifi iPad and then bought the 3G version a short month later. Genious marketing tactic by Apple. After all, most of those people wouldn't have purchased two units if they were released simultaneously.

    Dude ,I bought it at best buy ,they re offering a whopping 18 months interest free , so buy now ,pay later with no fees at all! This is even better than borrowing money from a family member

    iPad 3G + $130 for 3G chip + $360 a yr extra for data plan
    iPad wifi + $10 for mywi app + 0.00 a yr extra for data plan

    iPad 3G is better alright but the iPad wifi is better at saving money ohhhhhhhhhh

    Let's be realistic here what I mentioned above is exactly how it sounds and looks ,both models has the same capability , so better is no better
