iPhone 4s or New iPad?
I am new to this forum and found that i can get alot of helps from here about Apple stuff. I am not really sure where to put this thread in, so i put on both,
So, I am now stuck in between iPhone 4s and New iPad. I have just enough money to get either 16GB iPad or a used iPhone 16 GB 4s (already spot one with no contract in a good condition). I am a college student and do have a MBP 13" still working great. I'm still working out which option would be the best for me. I do have a blackberry and had enough with it.
With either one of these device,I would liten to music, watch music videos, light games, photo taking, social-networking, web browsing etc. I've heard some people lately have turned to iPad for taking notes, but for me personally, I would stick with pen and papers, and probably going to scan them with some of the apps available.
So, I am still questioning myslef, which one of these iDevices worth my money??
I know some of you do own both, and which do you prefer the most??
Any response would really help me out.

If I were you, I would definitely shoot for the iPhone first. You already have a MacBook Pro which can hold your interest till you save up more money for an iPad, and you currently have a phone you are fed up with. I say go for the phone first. Phones are more essential than tablets... Might as well have one you truly like/love.
Not having a MacBook of any sort, I shot for my 4S/New iPad combo. But, honestly, if I already had a MacBook, I very likely would've waited a little longer to get an iPad.

I would get the iPhone 4s - hands down a no brainer imho.
It's better for pics, mobile music and just more portable. The iPads are nice to have but I consider my iPhone essential. Really the thing you mention that the iPad is going to be appreciably better at is web browsing and videos (larger screen). You can always fire up your MBP when a bigger screen is warranted.

Under the conditions you've stated, the iPhone will probably be your best bet and since you already have a MacBook Pro, the iPhone will be a smaller version of the iPad with calling capabilities so go for it.

I say iPhone 4S as well. I was in the same boat as you by having a MacBook Pro 13"... What made my decision easier was that I already had a tablet... The PlayBook...
I have long been a MacBook user but passed up on the iOS devices for Blackberry's. That has now changed and I've fallen head over heals for iOS (except for the email experience which is archaic to say the least) and have since ordered The New iPad which I'm expecting next week.

I have a MacBook Pro, HTC Titan, iPod Touch, and HTC Flyer. I would definitely say get the iPhone first. I have had BlackBerry up to OS 6, and they frankly are rubbish. I would recommend the windows phone personally but I don't know if you have a Windows pc, so just stick to iPhone. I personally hhave Windows on a pc so I'm fine.

If I were you I'd still get the iPhone first and save up for the iPad. Personally I'd pass on the kindle.
