Re: get both

There's nothing hypothetical about it. The Atrix was the first, and the rest will follow. Considering that tablets modeled after the iPad are nothing but smartphones with larger screens there evolution is natural.

Just like mine your comment that you'll realize that you still need another device can be applied to anything. No, photographers don't do a lot of typing, but outside of being used as a viewing device ARM tablets also do not offer much that a smartphone doesn't.

Here's a simple suggestion: why don't we stick to devices that exist rather than hypothetical devices that don't exist. Does that not sound reasonable?

And btw, your comment regarding buying an iPad "thinking you'll use it, and realize later that you don't use it nearly enough to justify having another expensive device" can apply to anything you buy. So that comment is neither here nor there.

For people who do heavy typing, an iPad isn't the right device. Especially for a writer writing articles and publishing something extensive, as this writer wrote! Simple as that. But photographers aren't doing a lot of typing for their work.
