notepad advise

i want a solution whereby users can remotely (at the physical site) fill in an inspection/questionnaire.  i think it will be a online html form made using  it will have check boxes, drop down lists, an open text box to type in notes, etc.  & feed the data into a db (in wufoo's case, they store the data & provide some nice analysis tools/charts/etc).

whats your opinion/advise on following:
  1. inexpensive tablet or other device for remote/mobile users.
  2. isp for the mobile device.  pros/cons of diff vendors or whichever isp/plan you recommend.
any other feedback welcome too.  i thought about doing it offline & uploading the data once users are back at the office to avoid cost of isp, perhaps using app (which does exactly that for ipads) but just seems too user unfriendly/cumbersome (these are not tech savvy users).
