I have wanted an iPad ever since it was originally released, but never had the spare cash to spend so much money on something that I didn't necessarily need. Recently I purchased the iPhone 5 for myself, and it looks like I will be able to get the new iPad as a Christmas gift if I want one. Can anyone give me some true benefits to having an iPad since I already have an iPhone, aside from the obvious of it being a very large screen? I have a Nook that I would still continue to use for reading because it is much smaller and lighter than an iPad, but I do like the ability to do something like watch Netflix in bed on a large iPad screen. Basically, I'm trying to convince myself that it's worth it; it is a lot of money after all.
