Should I Buy a 3G iPad or WIFI iPad?
You’ve decided on an iPad size, but what about 3G? Do you need the 3G model? Well, that depends on how you are going to use the Internet on your iPad. If you are always going to be using it in an area with wifi connections there is not need to spend money on the 3G model. However, if you think there will be times you want an Internet connection but will be out of a wifi area, you might want the 3G model.
For example, traveling is a great reason for the 3G model. If you go away and are staying someplace without wifi you can connect with your 3G iPad. The great thing about the 3G iPad is there is no contract. You can purchase one month of 3G service for the time you will be away and then cancel after that month.
If you have an iPhone or another device capable of 3G connections (like a MiFi) you might want to pass on the 3G iPad. Why pay for 3G service twice?
In the end picking the right iPad depends on you and how you use it. I suggest making a chart and figuring out your priorities and what you can afford. Maybe you want more space, but want 3G also. The 32gb + 3G might be the one for you.
For my needs the 16gb 3G is the right one. I don’t need much storage space, but I would like the ability to connect to the 3G network when I travel and don’t have internet.
Of course, if money is no object I would go for broke and get the 64GB with 3G.
