    Jan to Feb I was thinking about upgrading my iPhone this year, then the OS 4.0 preview happened and I though, gee, not to much to see here, lets get an iPad.

    I got the cash all ready to get one A.S.A.P

    Now all this hype about quite a radical new design and bigger battery, better camera etc.

    I’m now so interested in seeing what’s in store fore the iPhone this year I’m NOT buying the iPad now, and will wait and see.

    If it wasn't for the leak, well, I probably would have ended up buying both bought both.

    A lot of ppl that are thinking about getting an iPhone 3GS or 3G are thinking the same thing I bet.

    They fill too separate niches, but if you can only buy one I'd suggest the iPhone as its more portable and offers a lot of the same features.

    I know they are "separate niches". The iPhone (my current 3g) has specific uses for my work as well as being just a phone.

    The iPad was going to be, well, just a shiny toy to treat myself.

    What did it for me was the announcement that iBooks or whatever it's called is coming to iPhone. That was the primary reason I wanted an iPad. Actually, that and video chat but we all know how that turned out. So, yeah - this year I'll be replacing my trusty 3GS with an iPhone HD and will be waiting until next year's iPad to see if I want one then.

    I'm definitely buying a iPad

    Based on the supposed iPhone, the EVO is looking better every day

    My lack of funds right now stopped me. Stupid kids insist on eating. How selfish of them!

    Your problem is monetary.
    You NEED a phone. Do you need a NEW phone? If you think your current 3g will serve your needs for the near future, get an iPad. But remember, you don't NEED an iPad, you WANT it.

    You either had some pretty low expectations for the HD or didn't think one would come...

    Better camera, battery and screen were a given. I wouldn't call design "radical" except the glass/ceramic back is cool.

    I decided i wouldn't get one after the OS preview. The hardware leak just solidified that idea.

    Surprised it had such a big impact on you. Oh well, something cool to look forward to.

    No. The iPhone 4G seems pretty cool, I can't wait to upgrade but first, Apple should remove those unneccessary seams along the sides.

    Yip, I was going to go for a iPad 3G this year when it evetually comes out - didn't expect the new iPhone to be much different to my 3GS but having seen the leaks.. I'm waiting to see it released before going for an iPad...

    I don't need either, its more down to what I want.. :)

    Only from the perspective of running out of $$

    I cannot afford both and the iPad is more of a luxury where as my phone is a necessity, though I'll admit purchasing a new iPhone is an extravagance in so far as I don't need a new phone right now.
