Starting at 5PM today, you can pick up the iPad WiFi-3G capable tablet at the Apple & Best Buy stores near you. The more expansive version (Apple charges an additional $130 premium for the cost of adding a $30-or-less 3G radio hardware) will free your iPad from the hotspot (and your couch). It allows you to roam around using the AT&T 3G network. Check out the blue map from Verizon web site for coverage in your area before you subscribe to AT&T $30 (month-to-month) “true unlimited” contract-free data plan. There is also a teaser plan at $14.99/month for up to 250MB.
