I got the Wifi only version so I didn't get saddled with monthly bill, but I'm surprise so many people get the 3G version. How often do you leave the house with the iPad?
I do occasionally (a few times a year) need access away from wi-fi, so 3G was a must. Jailbreaking the iPad and tethering your cell phone only works if you've got a fancy phone with a data plan - which I don't.
What takes the sting out having to get 3G this time is it's month-to-month and much cheaper than my Sprint contract was. Paying $15 a month a couple of times a year seems like a decent trade-off. Hell, it might be worth keeping the $15 month plan going all year for those times when wifi isn't handy. but the novelty of that might wear off after a bit. Plus, I like that the GPS is more accurate in the 3G models. (For example, my girlfriend's iPad always shows her in the next building when she's over.)
If I have the needed money to buy the most expensive iPad then for sure I will go for the most expensive one.
I bought the Apple iPad Wi-Fi + 3G 64GB
I bought a 16gb iphone before and always thought: I should have bought the 32GB
and the 3g well, I think the Ipad is "internet everywhere".
If I am in a hotel lobby, at a presentation etc.. and there is no WIFI
well, thats the moment the 3g is crucial. imho
Just got my 16GB 3G iPad - I intend to learn everything about it and then next year buy the improved hardware unit.
I bought the 64GB wi-fi with 3G in the uk with a case I paid £730 just a little bit more than the us
IPad 64GB Wi-Fi + 3G
I'm embarrased that my question is so rudimentary. I'm new to Apple and was given a fully loaded iPad by a friend.
Question: What do I do to get the keyboard to come up on demand? I've been poking at the screen randomly and sometimes the keyboard appears and sometimes it doesn't.
I have a 64g 3G and we just bought my soon to be 3 year old a 32g wifi. At least that's who my wife tells me it's for....mmmhmmm
