Quick and probably a stupid question. If I buy the wi-fi ipad, can I plug my dongle into it's usb point to make it 3g when I need to?

If you wonder why I ask, I have an iphone which I can access 3g on etc. But what if i'm away in a hotel say and there is no free wi-fi and I want to use the ipad?

And another stupid question, I can access Itunes at anytime on the ipad right? without any wifi, so all my films etc will be accessible all the time?

apple, Mac OS X (10.6)

    No that doesn't work, there is maybe in the future a way to "tether" your iPad to your iPhone (use the iPhone as a modem), but that is in the hands of your provider…

    You can play all the content that you stored on your iPad…

    Get a MiFi that works with your cell 3G service then connect your iPad to the MiFi using the iPad's WiFi.

    You can access only the data on your iPad unless you are connected to the Internet.
