    Depends on whether you're in the US and will have to pay an extra $30/month for the priviledge, or if you're elsewhere and can pay as you go for data.

    I have one of each and since getting the 3G version, I haven't touched the WiFi only one. It's simply because I can be connected anytime I need to be. 3G may not be as fast as WiFi in my city, but at least it's a connect when needed.

    I have one of each too. I say the wifi is my wife's. We use it around the house a lot, replaced the laptop. The wifi isn't that good (yet?) and there are places in the house where it will not hit. Since it can be spotty, which is irritating to me, I just leave mine on 3g and I went for the unlimited data plan. Also when we are driving my wife uses the 3g to look up things, to use Zillow and, and the like. She likes it also as I like to go shopping with her now, and I sit in the car stream Netflix, watch podcasts, read mail, etc. To do it all over again, I'd just get the 3g, but this way we can each have ours set up the way we like.

    I have the wifi only version and have MyWi on my jb iPhone. Hopefully soon AT&T will allow tethering and then my wifi only iPad is even better!

    Depends on your usage I suppose. Personally, for me I see no reason for the 3G version since I use my iPad and just tether it to my device. (iPhone and Nexus One)

    3G is a waste of money! your paying an extra $130.00 plus $30.00 a month to use it. I have my wifi connected to 3g using my nexus one as a hot spot and I pay nothing extra for it. I know you can do the same with an iphone. My cell phone is always with me so i always have a connection. And besides 3g is not worth $30.00 a month it is just not fast enough.

    Since AT&T is worthless I tether my iPad to my Droid. I would never get something locked to AT&T ever again.

    If the rumors are true and Verizon is going to have their own cdma iPad, I'd still rather save the money and use my wifi tether to my Droid.

    not worth it unless you are remote most of the time, almost everywhere in main cities have a free wifi now

    It is if you travel most of the time and you want to be connected to the internet all the time. Otherwise, just save the money for something else.

    I got a wifi one myself since both my workplace and house is covered by wifi network. 3g is a bit pointless for me. It does depend on how and where you gonna use your device.

    It depends on how or where you're going to use your iPad. As for me, WiFi is good enough for using my iOS device.

    Simple, worth is always highly subjective no matter what the topic. I find it worthwhile to me to have the option at my disposal. Whether you find it worthwhile or not is an entirely separate matter.

    Its Depends on your usage but 3G is better one it has a good features.
    Better and good are also highly subjective words. Don't assume that your preferences are universal. Be specific in explaining why you think something is better or good so the person reading your post can make an assessment using his/her own priorities.

    If you are a iPhone 4 user as well ; You have the availability of using your iPhone 4 as a modem. (Personal Hotspot) (some providers charge extra for be careful) You can easily connect your iPhone 4 to your iPad 2 only Wi-fi like using it as 3G. Instead of buying 32GB wi-fi + 3G; you can buy 64GB only wi-fi with nearly the same amount.
