    @rmdort MiFi router. Basically uses a 3G SIM to beam WiFi. So you’ve practically got a mobile WiFi network running from a 3G mobile network. Which is ideal, because you can also connect it to other devices on the go.
    Only downside is that you’ll be limited to the MiFi’s battery life, which will most definitely not run the full 10 hours iPad does.

    First.. ! $60/month for 4GB!??? Glad some things are cheaper in other parts of the world. MiFi is probably the way to go, the 3G price plans will always be a little steep priced especially during the launch period. 3G on iPad 2.0/3.0 probably a wiser choice, once they’ve stopped making you pay the premium for having 3G on iPad.
