I had a caller the other night who is trying to decide between buying the iPod Touch or the iPad. He isn’t sure which would be right for him, and hoped I would throw some advice his way. I asked the kid what he plans to use such a device for, so that I could make a better recommendation. However… he doesn’t know what he wants to do with it. If you aren’t sure what you need a device to do, why do you need it at all? DON’T buy anything yet simply because you “can” or want it. Buy it because you actually need and will use it!
If you want something that will play music and games and be easy to take with you anywhere, you’ll probably want an iPod Touch. But if you want to watch movies, play games and stay mostly at home, then you’ll likely get an iPad.
Neither one have a camera at this point in time. The iPad has the screen real estate going for it, but again… it depends on what you want to do with the device. You have to know what will suit your needs and lifestyle the best before you rush out to make a purchase. Each of these products will do different types of things. I really can’t begin to tell you which would work for you, as I don’t know what your needs are.
I have to admit it, though: I will not be giving up my iPad for an iPod touch anytime soon!
