    Did you guys see this post @ Gizmodo?

    I can't see how they ditched their iPad for the 1Phone 4 unless they didn't need one in the first place.

    That is a very misleading story in need of an answer.

    One has to appreciate that the iPad is not for every one. I mean what a waste of news space does it really matter if some one prefers the iPhone over the iPad. They most likely were given ipads and had no use for them in the first place because they rely on their laptops.

    I have both iPhone 3GS and also iPad 32 wifi. When I am at work i use my iPhone for 3 reasons. The corporate wifi is bogged down and intermittent ( not an Apple problem) so i use 3 g. In the car i have the integrated parrot system so i can enjoy my music plus use it for gps when needed and last but not least it is a phone.

    As soon as I get home the iPad is with me all the time as it is so fast light convenient and fun to use for every day needs. I only use the Macbook when I need to sync or back up which is may be every 2 weeks.
    The point is both devices compliment each other. I would never sell my iPad nor stop using it even when I upgrade to the iPhone 4 as they both have their places in my life.

    I would agree with that, it would be great reasons to own both.
    I don't have an iPhone. When I go out I always ask myself: "Do I really need to bring the iPad with me for that outing?" because its heavy, fragile, difficult to conceal and attracts too much attention.

    If I had an iPhone, there would be no questions about it. Go!

    If I had an iPhone4 I'd need a second cell phone on a reliable carrier that I could actually use the phone functions with.

    I have verizon but I have considered downgrading my droid to just phone and getting an iPhone, that way I get the iPhone functions and the ability to make calls.

    I can tell you the Iphone is a cool tool but it has some drawbacks for me. One is the battery life at least on my 3GS model and two is screen size. I love both but iPad wins with me for these two items alone.
