Summary: I bought my white Verizon 4G/WiFi 16 GB iPad as a replacement for my iPad 1 WiFi only. I am very pleased that I decided to replace the older iPad, finding it to be slow for creating documents and presentations and lagging all too often when bringing up some websites and videos.
I was disappointed with the defective Home button on my initial new iPad purchase but I returned it to the Apple store several days later and they provided me with a brand new iPad that is perfoming flawlessly. I advise anyone buying the new iPad to keep the box so that if you need to return it Apple will provide you with a new one within the return window.
I have not tried the 4G data service yet, but I will on my next trip.
