The Register recently published an article which indicated, on the bottom line, that both technologies collaborates perfectly. Best show case for this is T-Mobile U.S. which is the largest GSM carrier and HotSpot provider there:

T-Mobile, for instance, says that 30 per cent of its hotspot subscribers also have cellular data plans based on GPRS. "This trend should be a wake-up call to any carrier offering or planning to offer a cellular data service," Pyramid said, endorsing T-Mobile's strategy of early, heavy investment in hotspots.

"We believe that by bundling Wi-Fi and cellular, T-Mobile has created a service worth more than the sum of its parts," the report concluded. It is critical of operators that have chosen to position their cellular service as competitive with Wi-Fi rather than offering a dual platform.
