Wired?
WiFi?
3G?
4G?

What money is no problem? Buying the device for USD 500 or using it for USD 1 per megabyte transferred (that's USD 3 for listening to a mp3, and much more for viewing a short clip on Youtube)?

And what do you want to do when connected?

Some possibilities:
- just browse a little bit
- editing documents in Google docs (device needs good keyboard then)
- viewing Flash (can't be done on iPad, for example)
- connecting to your company via VPN (not all devices support that)
- downloading that 4 GB movie to look later at night
- chat with people (device might need webcam then)
