    You are asking us to compare apples and oranges.

    It's not crazy if you need a smartphone and don't need a tablet, or need a smartphone more than a tablet. Only you can answer that.

    Do you need an iPad? I believe I would miss mine if I sold it for a phone.
    It is not stupid if you won't miss it.

    No, he's asking us to compare small apples to big apples.

    If you don' really find yourself using the iPad sell it.

    It's a personal financial and preference decision that nobody can make for you.

    I have 3 iPads, 2 iPhones and 2 iTouches in my family. Would I sell an iPad because I needed the money for i5? Yep, sure would. But that's a personal choice.

    No way. iPad is much better for media consumption.

    And since you have a 4S I don't see it necessary.

    No, because your iPhone 4s works just fine. Or maybe you can sell your 4s to buy
    iPhone 5.

    I'd still have to pay 400 after selling mine to get the same GB one in a 5:(

    Keep the iPad, sell the 4S and upgrade to the 5. If you really don't need the iPad then sell it, that should be a decision that's separate and exclusive regardless if you want the keep the 4S or the 5.

    Hold up, if its like a 16Gig iPad 3 or something it might be worth letting go while values are still somewhat strong. That amount of space is getting tight on the new iPad and we might see the rumored mini collect the 16 gig and maybe even 8 gig market for decreased costs. If the full sized drop at 32/64/128 next time around and/or the 16 is dropped next month, it might become a hard sell.

    What price where you hopping to get and what model? I figure WiFi only...

    How bad do you need it? Just be smart and wait until your contact is done. 4s is still a good phone. If you really want to be stupid sell it.:p

    Idiotic question. Another guy in another thread is asking whether he should spend $800 for a new iphone or take a free Nokia.

    How old are you people? Can't you just look at the facts, your income, your situation and make a mature decision?

    Why not simply be content with you 4s? Based on your thinking, you will run into this issue every time a new product is launched. You are creating a need.

    I vote that you buy your groceries at the gas station. Fresh bananas and limes count as produce too, right?!

    True, they do have a small convenience store at the gas station.
    But again its so hard to decide wether to pay cash or use my Capital one credit card?:D

    Keep both the ipad 3 and iphone 4s. Both are top of the line products and still very much having all the new features of the iphone 5. Ipad is less than 6 months old!
