Using an iPad mini in parallel to an iPad 4


I am using my iPad 4 every day for the following tasks:
- emailing (synced to Exchange)
- calender (synced to excange)
- meeting notes with Beezy (exported to Evernote)
- notes (Evernote)
- web browsing
- and different Cloud-based messaging systems like iMessage, Twitter etc.

As the iPad 4 is sometimes to heavy to take with me I am thinking of getting an iPad mini Wifi 16 GB just to be more mobile. But then I think on the otherhand that if I want a more mobile devine I could use my iPhone 4s more often.

Is anyone using an iPad mini in parallel to an iPad 4 and what are your benefits of such a combo?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts!

I'm really starting to contemplate doing the same thing. I'd feel kind of ridiculous having so many devices...I have a 3rd gen iPad, iPhone 4S, and Nexus 7 and really want an iPad mini. I'm typing this on my moms mini right now and I find it to be the perfect size for portability without feeling cramped like the Nexus. And lets be real, iOS is waaaay better all around for tablet uses. The fact that you can run all of your favorite iPad apps on it without requiring the developers to do anything. It's just a perfect device all around. I say do it!
