If your husband also wants internet access at home, this won't be the most cost-effective solution, but since the iPad 2 came out, I believe you can buy the original iPad from Apple for $99, and unlimited data with AT&T is $30/month (that's what I pay anyway, but I signed up 2 years ago).

I got my iPad mainly for internet/email access on long RV trips. I usually have some level of service even in the wilderness, small towns, remote campgrounds, along interstates.

One of the things I love about the iPad is that it doesn't support Flash, so navigating web sites like TMF is actually faster than it is on a laptop--no waiting for the animated advertising at the top of every page. And there are also lots of free and cheap apps and books to download.
