I am pondering real hard on whether to get the VZW 3G 64 or not. I am teetering on the information pertaining to the GPS operation. Does the GPS operate separate of an active service period with the 3G provider. I am far from a fanboy but I love my Apple Macbook and other Dell Mini 9 Hackintoshes. I have a Gen 2 and 3 Touch but I want to play with app building in the iPad and I feel that I would need most of the bells and all the whistles but I want them to work in an unrestricted manner.
