wifi ipad heres why
i got the 16gb wifi and heres why even though i love the ipad i wanted one so bad to really get the full expirence of what it could do and i love it i love the iworks suite minus the fact i cant import audio to my keynotes but i love everything about it for a first gen model its very advanced and easy to use. But the fact of the matter is just like i do every year with the iphone i know im gonna want the next model i couldnt justify paying 800 and something for the 64 gb 3g model when i know im gonna want the same thing next year when they add the camera its just gonna help out skype so much i cant wait!

Just to add my two cents to this discussion (though perhaps this is an old discussion); I bought the 16GB WiFi version shortly after release in the hopes that it'd be good enough. Pairing up a MiFi was no problem, and it did *almost* everything I needed; except for the lack of aGPS (which is only available with the 3G chip). As my primary (exc)use for the iPad is for navigation, this became a huge issue. So, that forced me to bite and grab a 3G iPad as well (girlfriend got quite the nice birthday/graduation gift). Upside is that without the 3G connection, I can still use my MiFi and get aGPS updates.

I also opted for the 64gig WiFi only version. I've had Verizon internet for the past 4 years and was grandfathered in to the unlimited plan. I use my MiFi constantly in places where other folks can't even get a cell signal. By using the MiFi, both my Macbook, the iPad, and 3 other friends can have access to the net. It's a little spendy, but I can justify it through work. Gotta love tax write offs.

What's I wanna say is, the iPad is really tempting and have the persistent demand, though iPad also get a bit of a pass on any bugs. ďAfter all it is the first one.Ē But the iPhone, thatís mature and now the signal and reception problems are bubbling. The market is much less tolerant of screw-ups on a product thatís been on the market for a while.
BTW, for iPad Wi-Fi or 3G, this article "Tips to Turn iPad Wifi Into 3G" also gives a good alternative.
