Default iPad questions

Have mercy here — I still don’t have a cell phone or any other hand-held communication device. But I am thinking of going crazy and buying an iPad (against all my earlier objections).

A couple of questions …

What is 3G good for, practically speaking? I understand that it allows one to have the web and other remote services in public places with 3G available. But where are those places likely to be? I do not routinely hang out in coffee shops or other public places with 3G, but is that how you get service in a hotel or similar venue?

What chews up data storage most? For a price, one can buy the thing with 16, 32, or 64GB. I assume that videos are the most demanding, then lots of high-res images. What else uses a lot of space? Apps?

Is it possible that I might have almost as much fun with the new iPod Touch?
