Anyone know what the 3G specifics are and how it will work? All I've read so far is that the first 100mb/month are free through Verizon. Will there be a monthly fee? Any other known details?

Found this on another site:

Verizon Wireless will be offering the following plans for Chromebook users:

An unlimited day pass for $9.99
1GB of data (30 days) for $20.00
3GB of data (30 days) for $35.00
5GB of data (30 days) for $50.00

Wondering how much data would be used if only for browsing, and no downloading. And if you can switch off 3G when using Wi-Fi?

If you have a WiFi connection, it won't use the 3G. The 100 MB / month 3G isn't much, but it's useful for when you don't have WiFi available.

Most places see to be WiFi..But since I know when I am not in a hotspot I keep my chromebook use lower (email and google voice -check texts- ) I find that in a pinch the free 100 is awesome!

Wifi is available in more and more places these days. I find that there is an open wifi connection nearly anywhere we might stop when we're traveling.

I only recommending buying the 3G model though. That way you can in a pinch you can turn on data. Or no a trip.

I was originally going to buy the WiFi version. I thought to myself I have WiFi about everywhere I'd use it + I have tethering on my phone. But for $70 more to have 3G available in a pinch isn't too bad of a deal. Now (when I get it), I'll have WiFi,T-Mobile 4G, and Verizon 3G - so pretty much covered everywhere I go.

I figured the same. T-Mobile's coverage isn't that great, so it's nice to have the 3G option when all else fails.
