Will I Pad be useful with only Wi-Fi
I had never even considered getting an I Pad or similar because I assumed that the service charges would be extensive above and beyond the initial prohibitive expense. The whole point seems to be to have all these cool apps etc. I hear that some apps are free and others are not that expensive and only one time purchase anyway.
We do carry inexpensive cell phones via Consumer Cellular (cheap service via ATT) but we are in the country and are in an almost dead zone so the cell phones usually don't work at home. However we do have 3meg DSL and are very close to the phone distribution box besides.
Our son thinks we should go in together and get the wife (his mom) a nice I pad mini. He tells me that for most activities, Wi-Fi is all that is needed for a wireless I-Pad to do most stuff. So the question is: is he correct? And am I missing some other point that I have not covered? She normally uses the computer for email now.
