    I have the droid its rooted (jail broken), it has a mifi app. It will wireless teather from at least 30 feet away maybe further. Works great with the iPad. I have used two laptops and iPad at the same time with it. I like how I'm already paying the 30 a month for the smart phone plan anyway, so it's really like free mifi.


    Just done a speedtest, it got 9.45 mbps download on broadband, 1.43 mbps down on mifi. I done a test on the droid and it got .86 mbps down on it's on 3g. So the pad is does great on the mifi.

    The Verizon MiFi works perfectly! My company supplies one to me for mobile Internet access. I am using it right now to make this post with my iPad.

    Yep mifi = wap. I find my mifi to be substantially faster that the wifi I am picking up at book stores like barns and borders. IMO it's the killer app for the iPad. Curious how much the internal 3G will drain the battery.

    Should be interesting to see since the WiFi iPad gets such good battery life.

    On my net books I take a substantial (nearly 50 percent) battery hit when using my USB dingle 3G vs the mifi.

    3g radios use a lot of juice. Wifi is a lot less expensive on the battery.

    How long does the battery charge in the MiFi last?

    I know that both Sprint MiFi radios come with GPS built-in them. I'm getting the same with Google Maps and my Sierra Wireless MiFi, it tracks my precise location. The iPad 3G version will have the same function, it will have the GPS chip built in the iPad. I'm still not sure if the GPS will work without the 3G service. Someone told me that the iPad 3G will work as a true GPS without the service, but that's rumor not fact unless someone can ping in that knows
