I don't have a smart phone because I'm not willing to pay more per month on my cell phone bill and an unlocked iPhone wouldn't even work on my provider (and is way too pricey). I also don't have a tablet. I want a device that can be a companion- and sync with my notes, reminders, calendar etc. on my Mac. The difficult choice now is between an iPod Touch and an iPad mini. On the one hand, the iPod Touch is pocketable. This is a big one. I can put it in my pocket next to my phone. I can take decent quality photos. I can pull it out anywhere and work with my local content (eBooks, calendar, etc..) But on the other hand, the iPad mini is better optimized for content (eBooks, etc). I suppose I could take it with me to some places (work, etc.), but I don't see myself taking it to nearly as many places as a Touch. On the other hand, I'm sure it's a richer experience in relation to a Touch. And though I'm not as upset as some people are over the iPod mini price/stats, I'm wondering if Apple will make a mayor update (retina display,etc.) to the mini in 6-12 months, though I don't see the Touch gaining similar breakthrough features anytime soon. In which case, I might feel slightly bad at having bought a gen 1 iPad mini, though it wouldn't be the end of the world either (especially coming from no smartphone and no tablet). Anyway, what's your take on my upcoming decision?
