iphone 4 Vs Ipad

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Putting aside the obvious flaming potential of this thread, the only real difference I can see between the ipad and iphone 4 is:

Size - Ipad is bigger
Communication - Iphone makes calls and now has vid calls to a degree

Other than that they have the same processor and OS. Not sure about the Res but thats not really that significant. Im sure you can download an ebook reader for the iphone.

I can see the use of a tabet as such, provided it offers enough functionality and connectivity, however given the ipad seems limited in these regards, I wonder once again exactly what role Apple sees the ipad performing in a consumers multi-media setup?

iPhone 4 > iPad in so many ways.

All the iPad has is the larger screen.

one is a tablet one is a smartphone... would you carry around an ipad with you even if it could make phone calls? im so excited for the new iPhone, the display is going to set the standard.

I can't wait to see how the processor that powers the ipad does in the phone. Performance should be epic. Other than that I don't really see using the ipad as a phone at all. It would look like an SNL skit with someone talking on it.

IMO, they are two different devices built for two different things and to fill different needs.. I would not compare them, as I cannot use an ipad as a phone or a iphone as a tablet

You know there is not any better way to end a day then laying in bed and surfing on the iPad. Works wonders because of the screen size.

So screen size -> great.

The iphone 4 is infinitely more useful to me and I suspect most people because of it's form factor, features and...it's a phone.

While I would like to have an ipad for browsing around the house and to have a cooler way to do most tasks I do on my laptop when I travel It wont do the several things I use my laptop for every day at work. Not yet anyway. I suspect a few years from now when the ipad 4 comes out and the app store is nice and bloated It'll be a killer product that I'll be wiling to shell out $400 or $500 for. I can't wait actually.

I remember being on the fence about the iPhone until the app store opened and there were suddenly all manor of useful apps I now use every single day that blow my mind. I hope the same happens with the iPad. Just give it time. You'll want one too.
