I don't use it often on my kindle (I exist in a giant cloud of wifi) but as soon as I drop it I'll be posted somewhere with no landline Internet - guaranteed.
Nikumaroro, here I come!
You should not regret getting the non-3G iPad. You've saved $100, and you can easily get a phone that supports tethering. The tethering charges are usually no more than the iPad service would have been, and now you do not have any vendor lock-in tied to the iPad device.
