Tabletfilter: What are my options for a tablet computer with occasional 3g connectivity (not a monthly contract)? Preferably something powerful enough to handle video and other display-heavy apps.

So, I'm looking at tablet computers and mobile things, and I'm generally finding the android honeycomb level of tablet looking good -- powerful enough for what I want, including video (and specifically including netflix). I'm not against the idea of an ipad, but I've got an iphone so I figure it would be nice to have a heterogeneous mobile platform as well.
One feature I'm looking for, however, is the ability - like the ipad has - to have
zipless contractless, one month at a time sort of cellular service, or some kind of pay-as-you-go thing. Because I spend most of my days moving between places that have wireless service, but it would be worth it to have cell connectivity for the odd week here or there. I have a strong preference against something I'd have to jailbreak/root in order to get the functionality.
