    I'm desperate for an iPad 2 but I just can't be spending money on an iPad and the new iPhone (probs out in sept). I want an iPad because you can do so much more on it when compared to an iPhone. I have an iPhone 3GS currently. I could get the iPad 2 now its just I know when apple launch the new iPhone in September I may regret it.

    What do you guys think? IPad 2 now or just leave it...... :s

    It would mean having the 3GS for at least another year minimum!

    Well, I would maybe wait a month or two and see what all these changes bring us. Maybe get the new phone then and consider the iPad 3 when it arrives?

    If you wait for the new iPhone, you'll be wondering what the next ipad will be, and it will just go on

    I was in this same predicament when the ipad2 came out and went ahead with the purchase.. 3GS is still going strong and I can wait on my next phone purchase. iPhone5 or see what droids bring to the table by years end? Definitely do not regret my decision :)

    The ipad2 is certainly a blast!

    It really depends on how you use your phone. I have both an iPad 2 and an iPhone 4 and I hardly use the iPhone other than for calling people. I get a lot more benefit from the iPad. But again it depends on your life style.

    Excellent point! I pretty much use my phone for only calling/texting/navigation. My iPad is also pretty much with me at all times so that could be something to consider..
