Do I need one? Ipad
I have an iPhone 4 and I want an iPad. My concern is like with things in the past that I will buy this really expensive piece of tech but be so over stimulated that I won't use it. So my question is, is it possible to have both an iPhone 4 and an iPad and they Coexist with each other. Or will I still use my iPhone for everything and completely ignore my iPad after the first few days of use. Any insight would be helpful thanks!32gb Iphone 4

I sold my iPad inside a month. My iPhone does it all when I'm out, and my netbook or laptop does what the iPhone can't (and more than the iPad could) any other time.

I say get the iPad, too. I have one plus an iPhone (albeit a 3GS, not an i4) and I find that the iPhone is great when rolling about and you don't have the iPad w/you. But when settled at the house, the larger format of the iPad is a welcome capability...

well i struggled with this myself, in the end it came down to 2 things.
1. i can do more with a $200.00 netbook than i can with a $800.00 iPad.
2. with a netbook i get the whole internet, not just the part steve jobs has blessed (i.e. flash).
so i use the netbook on mywi when i really need a bigger screen (or want to view flash content), but spend most of my time on iPhone 4.

I have both, and I love my iPad: it's relegated my laptop to being a desktop computer. I don't take my laptop with me anywhere anymore: it sits in one spot for when I need that functionality. If the iPad had been available when I bought the laptop last year, I would have foregone the laptop and purchased the best iMac instead. I realize that many others need their laptops with them, but the iPad is a good fit for me.

I have both and I love both. I could live without the iPad though, I do consider it a unnecessary device. Its not a device for everyone, especially power users.
Mine does exactly what I want it to though, its a lightweight easy to grab and easy to read/use device for emailing, surfing the internet and playing games. Will my laptop do it all? Mostly (no apps) but I grab my iPad now 8/10.2 - AT&T iP4S 16gb | iPad WiFi 32gb | 13" Macbook Pro 2.4 | Black Macbook 2.16 | Apple TV2
