Why I ordered a Wi-Fi-only iPad
Summary: While the 4G radio in the new iPad sounds appealing, I ordered the Wi-Fi-only version this go-around. Here’s why.
I finally completed my order for “the new” iPad at around 6:45pm ET today after several (hundred?) attempts and — for the first time — I ordered the Wi-Fi only configuration.

After dutifully ordering the Wi-Fi + 3G version for both the original iPad and the iPad 2, and for every subsequent iPad that I’ve purchased for family members — I’m giving up on paying the extra $130 for the built-in cellular data radio in my third-generation iPad.
