iPod Touch and iPad living together?
I'm planning on buying an iPad2 as soon as I can scrape up the cash (if I don't win one ). I already have an iPod Touch which I use quite heavily. I've got a couple questions about how these will work together and with iTunes.
1) I'm assuming I will be able to just sync them both, and stuff like my calendars, addresses, and data from various apps will be the same on both my iPod and iPad. Is that correct?
2) If I want to keep them in sync without having to physically 'sync' them via iTunes, I'd have to use MobileMe, which would keep some of the stuff in sync via the service. Correct? Also, how reliable as this been for people. I've heard some horror stories that want to keep me just doing it via iTunes (assuming I'm correct on point 1)
3) It sounds like most of my apps would just be on both as well. A few of them might require a separate license, or I may want to buy the separate iPad version of the app. Correct?
4) Is keeping these two devices living together a pretty happy experience, or messy? Should I just plan on getting rid of the Touch? (I think with an iPad, I'd be pretty happy with something like a nano even, just so I could keep my podcasts and music with me for bike rides or train commutes, etc.) I suppose there are a few advantages of having both... just curious of the experience of others. Worth keeping both?
I'm sure I'll think of more questions, but I'm really excited to get an iPad. I just attended another conference today with my MacBook Pro, and hated being tied to back corners of the room so I could participate and take notes all day long. An iPad would be a God-send for this kind of thing!
Thanks much, -Steve
