There are two monthly data plans available: 250MB or unlimited. There’s no contract, and you can apply and modify your service right on your iPad. I went for the unlimited plan through AT&T, which has great service in my area, but is limited in availability in some cities, so check with AT&T before deciding on a plan. The cellular plan for iPhone is separate from the iPad plan through AT&T.
At first glance, my iPad experience seemed boring, but after searching for new useful apps that are being developed every day, the device has quickly become one of the most used Apple products I've ever owned. The iPad is capable of acting as a secondar monitor to my iMac, a navigation system in my car, a digital bookstore, a gaming device, a mobile movie theatre while I'm traveling, and also a note taking device during meetings. I soon plan to distribute them throughout my company to create a more efficient communication device than that of current blackberry devices, with faster 802.11 Wi-Fi connectivity, and a faster processor than that of most cellular phones on the market today.
With the large number of applications already available for the iPad, and more being developed everyday, the iPad has quickly become an extremely useful device for many different areas of usefulness. With the large amount of memory onboard the iPad, many of these small filesize apps can be downloaded without affecting processing speeds. Overall, this Apple product gets a 4.5/5.
