It's simple, where are you going to use it? Do you have Wi-Fi at home and work? Do you use public transportation for long commutes? If you have Wi-Fi in the places that you will need to use it, go Wi-Fi. I'm planning on using mine at home where I don't have Wi-Fi, so 3G is really tempting.

I have a 3G original iPad and am planning on picking up an iPad 2 soon without 3G. I wish that I could tether with my iPhone on AT&T but I don't want to have to give up Unlimited Data to do so.
Today I decided my best option (since I will get the new iPad and my wife will get the old one) is to purchase a MiFi from AT&T. It's small enough not to be a pain to carry. 4 hours of battery life should do what I need between charges and it was free with free shipping this weekend. I also get 3GB of data for $26.50 with my employee discount.
There is a real convenience having the built in 3G but for me saving the extra $130 it worth carrying another device. Plus with the MiFi I can connect multiple devices. Hopefully one of these options will work for you.
