iPad

okay iPad promoters. convince me/tell me what the advantages are of an iPad over an iPhone for more than just ease of visibility and use because it's bigger. what can the iPad do that the iPhone can't?

Your ipad becomes an amazing sketchpad.

The application for loading two tracks from your itunes library onto a mixing deck is pretty sweet.

I guess you could do both of those on an iphone, theoretically, but I think it'd be prohibitively shitty.

I haven't got one yet but after spending a weekend with one I am convinced they're rad.

So... what can an iPad do that's so great, besides sketching and mashing music? I too am curious.

The iphone is a compromised device since it needs to fit in a pocket. The ipad is the ideal size for a touch device--you never point to the wrong link and you always hit the right keys.

It's better than a laptop for these purposes:
- passing around or sharing
- meetings
- letting kids/non-techies use
- certain types of games
- device that you don't have to spend effort maintaining

Admittedly, I don't have an iPad since I don't think it would get much use now, but if I were to get an additional computer at home, it would be an iPad.
