    I just recently--early May-- got my Iphone 3GS and my Ipad2 the end of May. I use the phone for making calls, texting, GPS, and quick data info. Otherwise I use the Ipad2. I wouldn't bother getting the new phone, I'd grab the Ipad2 and begin to enjoy, now!!!!

    Thanks for the input guys! I'm having to pay for two very costly holidays this summer. My gf says we can afford to get the new iPhone or the current iPad. The other option however is get the new iPhone and get my family to put money towards new iPad as a Christmas/bday present. I know I sound like a 10 year old (I'm 24) but apple sure know how to make us all giddy and products that haven't even been announced yet! Ha thanks people!

    I'd lean towards iPad as your phone is still working well for you, doing what you need, but the iPad would offer such a larger screen (even though pixel density isn't huge it's still quite nice) that it offers some very nice useability.

    Keep in mind that no matter which item you purchase, there will be an update in the coming months....but if you wait.....you'd then suffer from an update a few months after that...and so on...and so on....the electronics update cycle never sleeps....

    Simply based on the cycle I suspect the iPhone is more likely to be refreshed before the iPad. Likewise, I find more value in the iPad over the iPhone. Once you start viewing apps on the larger screen its hard to go back to the iPhone for that purpose.

    Yes that's true haha, the ipad2 is so crisp and fine :)

    I would recommend you DO NOT upgrade to iphone4 from 3GS, I don't think is worth the money, also rumors on the iphone5 so you should definitely wait just IMO.

    Is ipad2 worth buying? YES, base on the spec, resolution, etc. This E-book or whatever will be good for a long time lol Hope that helps!

    My iPad2, purchased in April, is my first Apple product. I am planning to purchase an iPhone when the 5 comes out as 1) my iPad2 is wifi only and it will be nice to have a device to tether to and 2) the phone, being smaller and more portable will be perfect for those apps that I'd want to use on-the-go, like listing and scanning grocery items, etc.

    As others have said, if you think about your specific lifestyle and uses for the devices, your path will be made clear to you. :)

    I have iPhone 4 and iPad 2. Love them both. If I were you, I'd keep 3GS iPhone and get iPad 2 now. The 3 won't be out til Mar 12. And iOS 5 is gonna rock the tech world come September...I'd want the iOS 5 on an iPad so I can take full advantage of it's features. Peep the iOS 5 video Apple's website. It's going to be bananas.

    I'll get the iPad 2 and wait for the iPhone 5. The iPhone 5 should be ready at Christmas but the iPad 3 may come out at Easter.
