iPhone-4 on VZW, iPhone-5 on AT&T, or iPad-2 + dumbphone?

My contract with AT&T (iPhone 3GS) is up this summer. By then, we will surely have the new GSM version of the iPhone, and a new model of the iPad. I really do want an iPad and don't want an iPhone.

Why? The iPad blows away the iPhone for reading (eBooks, eZines, etc.), video, and apps (especially games). And the iPhone sucks, sucks, sucks at being a phone: crap reception (also an issue for iPhone-4), dropped calls (I never had a problem on AT&T until I owned an iPhone), muddy earpiece (the iPhone-4 does not improve this; I've tried it out), weak microphone.

OTOH, will the VZW iPhone handle calls better? Will the new GSM iPhone have better telephony hardware? The only thing holding me back from getting an iPad is having to carry the thing around.

The Hangover "Satchel/Man Purse"

As for my choice of dumbphone, I'd most likely get this. Nokia has perfected awesomeness in dumbphones.

What makes you think there will be one this Summer, after VZW only just received the iPhone 4?

Are you aware that there are other electronics out there besides what Apple makes?

Easy money. Because with Apple fanbois, it's like shooting fish in a barrel. Just look at how relatively useless the iPad is, and how many people bought it anyway.

Apple haters can GTFO. The product is superior for my needs (psychology not being one of them) and that's all there is to it.

Contribute, or save bandwidth (i.e. shut up).

HATERS HATERS HATERS



Not being brainwashed by Steve Jobs doesn't make someone a "hater."

Similarly, starting a thread doesn't make you the boss of anyone.

anybody who polarizes themselves to a specific device or operating system and wont consider any alternatives is a fucking moron (that means you too Phil). I'm so sick and tired of these arguments. I use an iPhone and a MBP because I choose to. you use an android and windows PC because you choose too. get the fuck over it and shut your god damn mouth about it.

I am not polarized in the least. I evaluate every product Apple puts out on its own merits. It just so happens the only one that's fit my needs so far is a 60GB iPod classic.

So perhaps it is you, Step-hen, who needs to shut their goddamn mouth.




Oh also, stop being a hater.
