The iPad comes with an interesting data option: prepay only, and no contract. You can choose between $14.95/month for 250MB, or $29.95 for unlimited data. Which will meet your needs? TidBITS has a great article titled "Can You Get By with 250 MB of Data Per Month?" It's an excellent discussion of how much data you might typically use, and which option might suit your needs. Plus, it helps explain the prepay option and discusses the question of what happens if you exceed your 250MB.
