I guess I really don't understand the embedded 3G/4G in the system. Why do I want to tie my coimputing device to a particular network, and why do I want to pay a per device connection fee to the cellular gods?

To me getting a MiFi with 5 connections that I can share 1 data plan with my tablet, ipod, netbook, and my family's laptops. I get flexibility and a much smaller bill.

You can get a Virgin mobile version of the MiFi and do pay-as-you-go.
