I want to buy an ipad mini but I was wondering what cellular means. Is it like data?
You may access the Internet via:
1) Wifi -- you need to have a wifi router connected to the Internet.
2) using a cellular phone network -- Hence, cellular. You need to pay for this. Contact a cell phone carrier for more details. AT&T, verizon, etc.
Yes, data of all sorts.
