After saying I would never buy a tablet because I had to have a PC/laptop for my work, here I am using a shiny, new iPad for just about everything now. Just runs so much faster and have better apps to do what I need than the programs I use on my PC. Got a stylus and that has made it even easier to type and, of course, draw.

I have never tried a tablet, but I use my Android phone constantly. I don't know how I functioned without it. The tablet would probably be easier to use, but it wouldn't be as easy to carry around.

I hardly ever use the pc, unless I am coding, scanning stuff, or working with photographs.

I'm laying in bed withe the phone right now.

I'm starting to enjoy touch screens and mobile devices too; I can now access the internet using my XBox (not going to comment on the dashboard beta), my cell (android on the Motorola triumph) and from my Velocity Cruz tablet (it sucks, buy something of value versus cheap).

Finally retired the flip phone after getting a Droid as a gift. I was holding out for the new iPhone, but I may stat with this for a while. Definitely nice to be able to keep in touch with needs on my forum/emails without having to wait to sit down at a computer.

Personally I prefer Android to IOS (Apple).

I have never tried iAnything, so I can't judge it. Android works for me, though.

I went with wi-fi only as another data plan wasn't in my budget, so I just grab my wi-fi card if I leave the house. Works perfect for my needs.
