For whatever reason, if you could only have one of either the iPad or the iPhone, which would you rather own? What would make you choose one over the other?

I posted this on the iPhone board and got some pretty good responses and somebody suggested that I should ask the same question here and see what the responses were going be.

I voted iPad because I'm still stuck in the dark ages :eek: with no iPhone/smartphone since I only use my cell for occasional calls. I do like the form and function of the iPhone but my cell stays turned off more than on so I doubt I'd use it very much anyway.

The iPhone, since it can fit in my pocket, and can use it anywhere. If I tried to shove an iPad into my pocket I would be walking funny. And I can't just whip out an iPad without being noticed, or use it with one hand very easily.

No one every TALKS anymore with Texting/iMessage or BBM, E-Mail, Facebook, Twitter, Forums, etc.

I would pick the iPad (3G/LTE) because of it.

Tough one. If I had to absolutely choose though, I'd probably pick the iPhone just for the reason that I'd be able to make a cellular phone call.

Not even close for me iPad all the way, in fact the only reason I have an iPhone is because I'm staying with the iPad and wanted the phone to be on same OS.

I carry my iPad everywhere and really would even be happy with just a dumbphone that calls and text only. I don't even use my phone for going on the internet but very rarely anymore.

iPad with 3g(unlimited plan) and WiFi.....why would I need anything else out and about.:)

I would not want to live in that world! :p
But if I had to choose I pick iPhone. It's easier to take everywhere with you.

ipad.

There is no tablet even close to the ipad, but iphone is no longer such a standout phone. There are many choices in the phone market and many offer advantages over the iphone.

My current setup is iPad with no iPhone. Nexus S providing data to the iPad on the road.

iPad for sure. Love that thing. The only reason I keep an iPhone around is for the continuity of the apps and iOS specific features. Otherwise, I could probably just do with a cheap Android version.
