Will IPads hurt IPhones eventually?
Before I bought my first IPhone I was using your basic Mottorola phone. I could make calls and receive calls. However, in my line of work I waste a lot of time between jobs. I can't tell you how many car batteries I burned out listening to the radio to "kill time." I finally bought the Iphone and was in Nirvana. I basically had the internet in the palm of my hand. The downside was its small screen. Enter the Ipad which now gives me the internet with a larger screen. It just doesn't make your basic telephone calls. I am now debating if it doesn't make sense for me to go back to the basic much cheaper cellphone and complement it with the Ipad. To own both seems duplicative.
Now if I am thinking that, I start to wonder if other's aren't thinking the same. So in the end is Apple competing with itself now? Right now Ipads can't really replace notepads for computing power, tho can for "lighter" duty I suppose. But it does do all that the Iphone can and more (except make those phone calls).
