    I am thinking about selling my Droid to buy an iPad, what do you guys think? Has anyone done anything similar? I am wondering what are the benefits and disadvantages of getting the iPad over staying with the Droid. I would get the WiFi only iPad, so we could save $30 a month on the data plan too. The 3G is out because we are trying to save money. I know it seems stupid to want an iPad and save money, but I am selling stuff to get and there won't be a recurring fee. I was thinking I would miss the gps functions and having the maps on hand (especially turn by turn), but my main concern is not having internet everywhere I go. Do you think I should buy the iPad or stick with the Droid? Also I am the type of person who would carry this everywhere. Thanks.

    I sold my Nexus One yesterday and then went to the local Apple Store and picked up an iPad. If you thought the Droid had a nice screen.. Just wait until you get your hands on an iPad. Whatever Apple uses to deciper touch, it's 100x better than what I had to deal with my Android phones.

    However, I still have a BlackBerry. I would say for you it's a toss up. What would you value more? Money or internet everywhere? I know my iPad would go first before the smartphone. But I'm not always blanketed in wifi, so having portable internet access is very useful.

    I haven't used my droid for Internet since i bought my iPad. But i wouldn't sell it for the iPad. That's my mobile hotspot haha. Plus it's an awesome phone, enjoy it. You can't always take the ipad with you, remember that.

    Blackberry plus iPad is a good combo(except for touch screen Blackberry). The only reason I'm keeping my android phone is tethering. Other than that I have found that the touch screen features on the phone are starting to feel really clunky after being spoiled by the iPad.
