Of course I can be wrong. I just read news from Maemo site:


Dr. Ari Jaaksi has just finished his keynote speech over at OSiM, 
revealing a lot of juicy stuff on the future of Maemo. Check out the the 
upcoming Maemo 5 (5th generation) highlights:

     * online anywhere with cellular connectivity over HSPA for 
broadband anywhere
     * powerful computing with TI OMAP3 processor - for better 
performance and better graphics performance
     * photo sharing with hi-def camera - imaging and photo-sharing
     * Nokia is now Gold Sponsor of Linux Foundation, has contributed 
code today for 3G/HSPA cellular (data) connectivity for OMAP3 to Linux 

     * no news yet on backward compatibility for older devices

 From what I can find on the net, HSPA seem to be an extend of the 3G. 
So it seem logical to me that the next tablet will have 3G radio.

Best regards,
