I bought the iPad for on-the-road internet access but the ATT 3G doesn't get it done. I have yet to find coverage in the rural areas of Utah and Colorado where I like to Jeep. Nearly always I have Verizon coverage. I have a Verizon cell phone, so maybe it makes more sense to get a Verizon smart phone for internet access. Then I can hotspot data to the iPad.
For smartphones Verizon now has both i-Phones and Droids. Which is the more useful for travel internet -- weather, restaurants, personal email etc? Will my iPad care?
