Following our other thread, I'm curious to hear how many of you went for the full 3G version of the iPad (and thus use it in public) or went for the "standard" WiFi version instead?

Wi-fi - I use my iPhone as a 3G hotspot if needed.

I use too much data to tether to my phone, so I have a MiFi on Three network.

RE: Networks and contracts

My original iPad is 3G, but I'm about to change it to a non 3G iPad 2 (not paying out £700 again!). Haven't used the 3G all that much, not enough to warrant the extra cost of the 3G version, plus £15pm contract which I've been on.
I said I wouldn't change, but one app has changed all that.... Big smile
