    After using the iPad for a few hours and then picking up the iPhone it almost looks like it shrunk. The screen feels smaller then ever now. I can see why the iphone will never compete with the iPad no mater how fast or what screen res it uses. It is just to small to really use for much. The iPad is an entirely different exp for video, Remote Desktop etc. thats pretty useless on the iphone. Size does matter.

    yeah it was so big before but after using iPad it's surprisingly appears tiny.
    but iPhone does have obvious advantages over iPad.

    If I use my iPhone after using my iPad for a while, I definitely think my iPhone seems pretty tiny.

    Like the camera, and certain apps that can be used on an iPhone. Heh, add that to making calls, sending texts and more.

    Same experience here. Interesting that others are feeling the same way.

    To turn one of the oft-mentioned criticisms of the iPad around - the iPhone is just a shrunken iPad.

    After using the iPad for only a few minutes, I received a phone call. It felt like I was holding a toy.

    The increased resolution and new design of the next version is going to be very welcomed.

    Ya! I especially like the "shrinked" part of the thread title. I notice some serious shrunkage with my iPhone too. Especially after I go in the pool. :D

    Definitely has ... amazing how perception alters .... like when i first hung 42" plasma on the wall ... thought it was stupid big and a silly choice .... 2 weeks later i was thinking 'yeah ... could have bought the 50' :)

    Hoping the higher res/higher pixel density of the next iPhone will make things feel tighter again

    When I got my iPad, I figured I would be using it as my "bigger" iPhone. I find it's actually been the opposite. I think of my phone as my smaller iPad now.

    Anyone feel like claustrophopic? I breaths become short and I sweat a little.

    On occasion I mildly pass out for a duration of 5 to 10 minutes.
