Is the iPad WiFi+3G model worth getting compared to the WiFi Model?

Battery and Power:

  • Up to 10 hours of surfing the web on Wi-Fi, watching video, or listening to music
  • Up to 9 hours of surfing the web using 3G data network
    Note: For some reason, I'm getting better battery life than specified.

I tether my iPad 32GB WiFi to my iPhone 3G[s], so I didn't need a 3G model. That saves me $30/month iPad data plan.

Yes but only if you got it before the unlimited plan.

Depends, now with the new AT&T data plans going into effect it really depends on what your going to be using your iPad for. I personally would just recommend getting a WiFi only iPad but you are the one paying for it so I would really think about what you plan to do with it and base your ultimate decision of that.

Yes, I would totally recommend it unless you don't ever plan on taking the ipad out of the house.

It is worth getting only if you buy it before the 7th and grandfather yourself into an unlimited data plan

Yes i think its worth the extra $130 because it's like a warranty... if you're ever in a place and no wifi, you're screwed with the WiFi only model. just a thought.

Yes, but it depends on if you would bring your iPad places where there were not Wi-Fi networks, or if you would use it at home, work, etc.
