I am currently developing an iPhone game (which will also have an iPad version), and have some ideas for iPad apps. I eventually planned on getting an iPad for development any ways..... But, recently I have been given the opportunity to get a free iPad (or take the cash) and just cant decide wether I should get it or not. I really don't Require it right now. I have a desktop (hack pro), laptop (macbook 2.4ghz aluminium), and an iPhone (well that is a lie.. Sold it to get iPhone 4 when it releases here in Canada). I don't need it now but I will require an iPad for testing later when my apps are further in development. Part of me wants one now because: -I sold my iPhone, so it would be nice to have something to replace it until I get the iPhone 4. -It would be nice to play with the iPad. Get a feel for the device and it capabilities to see which routes to take for future app ideas. -A neat toy, which can replace lots of my laptop use (web browsing and junk) -If I don't buy the iPad the money will just be spent on something else. Probably a toy for my car (which I don't need either), or some other stupid thing. But then the small part of my mind (the rational part), keeps saying I don't need it right now (which is true) and can hold off on the purchase for another 5 or 6 months.. Thoughts? Oh. I should also mention I am going to go for the 16gb WIFI.
