    Well, of you consider a camera fun, then get the phone. Otherwise, I'd get the iPad.

    Save the money and get some lessons in helicopter flying, or buy a powered paraglider. Much funner than a new camera.

    If you want a more funner pervious experience than you get with apple products alone, try vibratorwarehouse.com.

    If you like games and gimmicky apps, I'd go for the iPhone. However, if you like to try your hand at e.g. drawing or music creation, I'd go with the iPad. Also, the iPad is an excellent e-reader and great for PDF articles and news/media consumption in general.

    I would say go for the iPad. It is really a blast of a device and a great user experience. Once i got the iPad, i use the iPhone mainly for calls and texts :)

    On behalf of Americans who aren't like that guy, I apologize.

    Since you have an iPhone 2G and haven't felt compelled to get the improved version I'd say try the iPad. Ideally you'd buy each and return the one you don't like.

    I had to make the same decision you are making now.

    The iPad was my choice because of the bigger screen. Reading and watching videos is much more fun on the larger screen. My grandson says games are much better on the larger screen.

    I use my old phone for calls and the iPad for everything else.

    Agree.. since the OP said he wants something new, and he already had an iphone 2G and ipod touch, iphone 4 won't be that much different from form factor and screen size.. iPad will be a different experience.

    A cell phone has a hundred times more radiation than a Wi-Fi device. Would you want to be next to radiation microwaves all day?

    Yes, it is getting iOS 5. And based on previous iDevices, it could very well receive iOS 6 before Apple finally stops supporting it.

    Just go to Toys R Us if you're looking for something fun to play with.

    I see what you did there ;)


    I'd say it'll absolutely get 6. Maybe even OS 7.... Maybe.

    OP: I'd say go for an iPad if you're looking for a change of pace. Plus in addition to having many optimised apps, it is also great as an eReader and for just light internet browsing.

    Oooooh, nice one ;)

    iPad 2 and you'll be good.

    My hope is more apps will take advantage of the added horsepower (today and going forward) to make it a better long term "fit" for you.

    Plus you get a camera (x2) and can have fun taking Photo Booth pics of yourself. :eek:

    Definitely iPad! I can see where a lack of interest in a camera would make the original iPad a great option.

    If you're still rocking a first-gen iPhone, and can wait a month or so, get the iPhone.
    Going from first gen to an iPhone 5, will be like going from horse and cart to a Lamborghini.
    If you use your phone just for the basic calls and texts and isn't that important, get the iPad.

    After I got my iPad 2, I only used my iPhone 3GS to make and receive calls. You will not be sorry if you get an iPad and if I were you, I would save a little more money and splurge on an iPad 2!

    Once you own an iPad, you will find that the iPhone screen is almost painfully too small and useless except for phone calls and music or podcast listening.
