    Does anyone else think it feels strange using your iPhone after spending time using your iPad? Everything on the iPhone just seems so small compared to the iPad. Also, using the iPhone keyboard seems so much smaller. I know - duh, but still I wasn't expecting the difference to be so surprising. I have to say, my contract on my iPhone is up in September, I may just go back to using a regular old cell phone and get some form of Mobile Hotspot to go with my iPad. Either that or sell my WiFi iPad and get a 3G model. I've been taking both devices around with me all the time anyway. Since I got my iPad, I've used my Mac mini exactly once and used the data services on my iPhone only a couple of times.

    I think the phone is still better in certain situations. Like if you're stopped at a traffic light and want to check the traffic, or if you're going somewhere that you don't want to bring a big pad.

    When you get used to more space (whether iPhone or housing), downsizing is uncomfortable. You could go to a data free phone, but unless you are going to sclep that iPad around everywhere, you might miss the portability of the iPhone.
