    It doesn't look as cool as the iPad Wifi, but its still nice. Some interesting facts:

    1. There are four antennas on the iPad

      An antennae on the communication board
      An Antennae on the backside of the display
      GPS antennae
      Cellular Antennae

      (Wi-Fi/Bluetooth, GPS, 3G and cellular antennas)
    2. The same baseband processor (Infineon 337S3754 PMB 8878 X-Gold IC) is used on the iPad 3G and iPhone 3GS
    3. A simcard can be "cut-up" to be a mini simcard and fit the iPad
    4. The 3G iPad supports UMTS/HSDPA on 850, 1900, and 2100 MHz and GSM/EDGE on 850, 900, 1800, and 1900 MHz.
    5. In the US, AT&T is the only carrier that operates 3G on frequencies the iPad supports. T-Mobile should work, but only on the slower EDGE network.

    No hidden surprises here. Can anybody confirm its battery life?

    Part of me wishes I had a 3G model, but I can hold out until the 2nd gen.
