    I have both and it makes my life easier because I use my phone a lot during the day so in the evening there isn't a lot of juice left. Having the iPad means I can put the phone onto charge and switch to the pad unless I need to use my lappy instead. It also means that in the late evening I can lay in bed with my iPad and have my phone on the dock playing music :)

    I totally agree, I have iPhone 3GS and an iPad 1 and they compliment each other. IPad is wifi so when I need that it's at work and home and my iPhone covers the rest.

    iPad is a superior device for home use in comparison to iPhone.
    I have iPhone4 and iPad2.

    I always thought about this. Do I get an iPhone as well as my 3G iPad 2? Not for me right now I don't think but who knows in the future. At the moment I am going with my Blackberry / iPad 2 combo.

    You can't carry iPad everywhere therefore iPhone.

    What? In a restaurant, a bit antisocial isn't it? I'm talking about where a surreptitious look at small device is more devious than very large one!

    I have both iPad and iPhone 4. They both function in there own special way and I really don't feel there is any overkill. When the iPad first came out, I thought it would have been some sort of a duplication, but I find there is none. A lot of apps that I used on my iPhone I've since switched over to my iPad for better enjoyment (especially for book reading). And since I've JB'd (jailbreak) it's on an entirely different level so to speak.
