Apples and Oranges...no legitimate comparison between them given they serve two separate purposes. If it's strictly a question of being limited to one of them and having to choose which one would be more useful in my own situation, the iPhone 5 (only because i always buy the new iPhone when it comes out and have no desire to have an iPad).

For me, it would be the iPad since I already am on a 2 year contract with Sprint. Both the iPad and the iPhone serve different purposes. I already own the iPad (it was given to me as a gift) and I'm looking forward to seeing what the second generation has in store. I doubt it will have a Retna display, (not to mention there is no such thing, its just a marketing ploy from Apple)
The iPhone will have NFC. They alreeady applied for a patent on it a whole back, but the real question is, would there be a software over hall for the fifth generation of iOS?
@dp - I'm glad you understood the question. Too bad Sean did not...
I agree with your comment.
This may be the year that I skip out on the iPhone upgrade (unless ATT gives the early upgrade). I've already got the OK from my wife to get the new iPad as long as I give her my current one (which is only two weeks old).

love my iPad and love my iPhone 4
but if i had to upgrade only one of them it would have to the iPhone. i always have it with me so i would get more out of it.
not to mention that an iPhone with new contract (that i'd have regardless of upgrading or not) = $200 and an iPad= $499+
I'd much rather save the $300 and get the girlfriend an iPhone also. (she still uses a blackberry the heretic)

The iphone is pretty much a freebie each year for me. Flip old one, buy new one, break even or profit. And its definitely a must have device for me.
The ipad i don't really need. It's more for the kiddo, some games, or to watch videos on. So i can't see me wanting an ipad 2 to replace something i don't really need It's unlikely to be much of an improvement given what i use it for.

For me, i can't imagine upgrading to a new iPad. unless my iphone could sync with my iPad...... Hence making it a Macbook Air of sorts.
Don't need or want a camera on my iPad or care about a USB port on it either.
My iPhone has more usability for me.

Haha, nobody said neither yet! Why iPad 2? Well, for one, I already have an iPhone 4, and I think Apple will add some really cool features, like the retina, or nicer, display. That, plus at least one camera, and you got your self an awesome piece of hardware. Also, iPad has a higher resale value too.

I'd have to say iPhone 5, I still don't feel like I'm getting as much use as i could out of the iPad. I think the iPad 2 will have some nice upgrades but the original iPad will still be relevant. When I get the iPhone 5 I can then pass my iPhone 4 on to my GF.

Meow it's like cats in a box on this forum lately!
Anyway, I'll buy an iPad 2 if it has good enough hardware (better than the PlayBook) and enough interesting new features, but I'm definitely buying the iPhone 5 because I know it's going to be a good upgrade. So I suppose iPhone 5 is my answer.

So you'd buy the iPad because it's catching up with the iPhone from the year before? Lol.. And you're kidding yourself to say iPhone 5 will only offer NFC. In fact I'm pretty sure it won't considering there isn't anywhere in America to actually USE it.

He's talking about the bickering between the OP and people on the forum (See: Me) who were trying to find the reasoning behind his question. As it turned out, there was none, which i have no personal problem with, i wasnt demanding it, i was just hoping there was some point instead of it being generic and pointless.
Then he decided to take a shot at my futurama avatar...which kind of baffled me, but i guess if it made him feel like he got his "revenge" to my retort, more power to him, lol.
To the OP...relax there bud, i was just pointing out the obvious. It's ok to post useless banter from time to time like this thread, im doing it right now!
