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 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not only will it cost you an extra $50-$70 in restocking fees, it will also be another $130 for a radio that will be outdated in a year.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.

Seriously, just sell it on Ebay, the world market for Ipads is huge

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.
