Firstly, I do understand that there are already threads for people asking this. I get that this might be frustrating that I'm posting yet another one. Boo hoo. Each person has their own individual reasons for wanting one. So here's my dilemma, iPhone 4 or iPad. I've never owned an iPhone or a phone (never needed one and I'm only 18). I've been wanting to get an iPad ever since they launched it but I've also been finding myself needing an phone a lot. My main issue is data. I need it everywhere. Originally I was really wanting an iPad 3G just cause it's got a pretty good deal on the monthly plan (at least in Canada it does). Sucks not having WiFi always readily available. Both the iPad and iPhone fulfill this need. Like I said earlier though, I've been finding that I need a phone sometimes. Not a lot but nice to have for texting friends and uses for work. With it having just launched in Canada each of the carriers are having a special promo for the data plans I'd like to take advantage of. --------- I've wanted an iPad because I've just fallen in love with it. I've done plenty of thinking over the past few months about whether I would get any legitimate use out of it. I actually ended up selling my old MBP in favour of getting the iPad because everything I used my laptop for was just what the iPad does better (browsing etc.). That nice big display is awesome and the apps I keep seeing are so compelling. Not to mention the data fees are pretty minimal and also no contract. Having an iPhone 4 would be great because I'd have that data I need, it's a great little phone (aside from that minor antenna issue) and the plans are affordable for me. Considering I'm paying tuition and all that though, the contract for 3 years is a little disconcerting. My main thing not making me jump to iPhone is that small screen and the apps. I've got an iPod and presumably if there is a new iPod coming in September I'll be upgrading to that. ---- So could I get some help making this decision? Which product are you using more or liking more? Give me compelling arguments for which way to go.
