    Thx for those informations...  Now I know I have to wait for the Iphone Maxi.

    We need a combo. Duh. Let's go Apple. Phone and IPad mini where are you?

    Too many gadgets that do a piece. Lot's of new garbage heading down the turnpike.

    Screen difference while very important for me, makes no sense for Katie's eyes, her being 27/28.

    I decided to keep my iPad & do love it!!  When I go back to my iPhone to do something I'm amazed at how small it seems now. My mini goes pretty much everywhere with me since I have an enormous purse & it fits so nicely. 

     

    Only thing I don't like about it is I can't everybody from it, only other iPad/iPhone ppl

    I love my ipad as well, I got the regular one and mini seemed too small to me. Happy to hear you love it.

    Try MagicJack free application that allow you to make phone calls from your Mini. You of course must have a data account to use it outside of a wifi area. Works great for me.

    Just a comment on this as I've been looking into where they are with the technology, you can receive texts on your ipad just like a cell phone if you have a cellular data plan hooked to it using iMessage features so the texting is built into the box, so to speak, just like an iPhone as long as you utilize the features. The Cell Phone portion, I agree you would have to use something liek Google Vioce, Skype, MagicJack etc..

    You can however only receive messages from another user using iMessage, not from someone using a non-Apple device. There is no native abillity for receiving SMS or MMS messages since that is part of the voice cell technology. There are third-party SMS apps available, but how well they work is questionable.

    Instead of waiting for the iphone maxi, I bought the samsung galaxy note 2..  too bad I would had rather an Apple product but needed a tablet-phone.

    Good for you, always happy to hear that someone moved on from Apple dependency and doesn't have to spend time on these forums anymore. Please enjoy and feel free to share your impressions.
