One of the purchasing decisions for the iPad was whether to go with the built-in 3G connectivity or stick with the WiFi option.
Since I already have two laptops (work and home) which benefit from being able to access the Internet from anywhere, it seemed like a 3G/WiFi router was a better option than the built in 3G. I don’t want to pay for separate contracts for the lapdog, iPad, and SWMBO’s lapdog. So the fact they can all share one SIM is good.
The downside is that if it’s being used to partner the iPad it’s another device that needs to be charged up.
Time to get that Gel Cell powered USB port working!!
