I have had my iPad 2 for a full week now, and since most of the posts in here seem like they are complaints about the iPad (naturally, since people who are happy tend to not post), I thought I would rave about it. I have had an iPhone 4 pretty much since launch, so I was thinking of the iPad as more of a nice thing to have rather than a necessity. I did NOT buy the iPad 1 because of the lack of cameras, so the 2 is my first iPad. First of all, I may as well delete ebooks off of my iPhone. Not needed anymore. I LOVE LOVE LOVE my iPad as an e-reader. This was also the main reason I bought it. Bedtime stories for my kids are also a lot more fun now with the interactive books and the colorful illustrations. And my 4 year old's favorite part of the whole thing is when I let him turn the pages by swiping his finger--for some reason, that just thrills him. Second--movies/TV. Again, iPhone no longer needed for this UNLESS I am streaming Hulu or Netflix on the train. (Still haven't decided if I want to start tethering or not.) I have found my iPad to be awesome for just laying back on the couch and watching video. We "cut the cord" a few months back, and the shows I can't get on the Roku box or on the network's website, I download these from iTunes and watch on the iPad. (Deadliest Catch being a prime example.) Third, I'm using Facetime a LOT more. I mentioned in another post that a ton of my friends and family (a lot more than I expected and with no pushing by me whatsoever) have switched to iPhone 4--mostly Verizon people. I never loved Facetime on iPhone, but now I can talk to all those people on my iPad. It's a blast--so much more suitable on a tablet. And finally--last night. I was reading in bed, playing some Words with Friends, catching up with my Twitter and Facebook stuff on Flipboard, and suddenly see that the president is about to make a big announcement. Immediately flip over to the CNN app and my wife and I were watching the streaming video of his announcement right from the comfort of our bed. Could all this be done on my iPhone? Yes. Is it anywhere near as fast, convenient or fun? Not a chance. The iPad has made everything I liked doing on my iPhone 4 probably 20x more fun. I almost wish they would make one with phone functionality--I could just use it with my Bluetooth headset and ditch my phone altogether. PS--I sold my laptop this weekend.
