Anyway I thought wifi only model as best suitable for me, as I am planning to tether with my iPhone data.

Features of new iPad
1. Ultra-high-resolution Retina display
If there is one feature that will get people to upgrade their handheld devices, it’s eye candy. The new iPad has plenty of weight in this category thanks to its new Retina display which doubles the pixel count of the current Apple tablet to an astonishing 2048 x 1536 resolution. In case you don’t feel like doing the math, that’s over a million pixels higher than a 1080p HDTV, and it’s all crammed into a 9.7″ screen.
The new display, while very impressive, isn’t quite as big of a jump as the iPhone 3G was to the iPhone 4, but it retains the Retina namesake nonetheless. For owners of the original Apple tablet as well as the iPad 2, there’s no question that this is one of the most compelling features when considering an upgrade.
This update available from today, contains new features and improvements, including the following:
• Personal Hotspot*
- Share iPhone 4 cellular data connection with up to 5 devices (combination of up to 3 Wi-Fi, 3 Bluetooth, and 1 USB) • iTunes Home Sharing

Apple has an official Twitter account for the App Store, appropriately named @appstore, which promises “official App Store tweets including featured apps, exclusive offers, and more.”
The first post from the account came only a few hours ago, but there are already 80,000 followers signed up.
One of the questions that people have had with the Mac App Store was the question of “discoverability” of apps on the store that aren’t “featured” or on the “top” lists; hopefully this account will be one more way for Apple to get the word out about new apps that you might not otherwise hear about. If you aren’t a Twitter user, you can always follow the RSS feed for the account. If you’re on Facebook, App Store is there, too.
