    I don't think there will be a lot of model trading but then again who knows.

    Any thoughts?

    I think there will be a number, but people are buying the wifi models above retail so it would make more sense to sell a wifi model and roll the cash into a 3G. It may be the way I go. Not sure how the supply of wifi models are keeping up though.

    I second that! I finally retired my beloved iphone 2g and went with Android which I (of course rooted to) set up tethering on over 3g data. Its superfast and convenient.

    I think that in the next iteration of the iPad that the WiFi models along with 16GB storage amount will go away.

    I dont think there will be a lot of people doing that...i mean not only will it cost you an extra $50-$70 in restocking fees, it will also be another $130 for a radio that will be outdated in a year. I'm sure a lot of them will sell, but I don't think a lot of people are going to really need it since most decent phones can wifi tether one way or another ;)

    Why? The 8GB models never went anywhere. People like options. 16GB wifi being the cheapest, will always be the most popular. If people are forced to use 3G and have no wifi, sales will drop.

    I went to BestBuy tonight and spoke to the actual Apple Rep from that store and he said that Apple was given a specific instruction on how to deal with customers that are wanting to trade their iPad wifi with 3G version. According to the Apple rep I spoke to, ZERO tolerance. No trades will be accepted after the 14 day period is expired. Only option is to sell it and the the 3G later.

    I might go with 3G in the next iteration but I have been able to connect everywhere I go without a problem to free wifi. It would be great for the car but not necessary.

    Not everyone has the extra $$ to spend on an 32 or 64 gig ipad but, I bet those of us who only have a mere 16gb enjoy ours just as much. 1st gen 8gb nano, 16gb Classic, 80gb Classic, 16gb Touch, 16gb ipad and counting.

    I hope everyone that bought a WiFi unit KNOWING that they would later trade in in later for the GS... gets BUUUUUURNED. :mad:

    That is just no good, dishonest... and wasteful. :mad:

    These are weaklings that could not contain themselves.
    Shame on you. You are waste.
