PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It might be a cliche, but sometimes, a picture says more than a thousand words. Over the years, I've often talked about how the technology world is iterative, about how products are virtually always built upon that which came before, about how almost always, multiple people independently arrive at the same products since they work within the same constraints of the current state of technology. This elementary aspect of the technology world, which some would rather forget, has been illustrated very, very well in one of Samsung's legal filings against Apple.

Which my iPhone I pretty much only consume information.
With my iPad I create things every day. I'm able to do about 90% of what I used to do on a laptop. I definitely wouldn't be able to say that about my iPhone.

HAHAHA, please, elaborate on this. First, where do you get this 90% figure? And then what kinds of things do you "create" on an iPad/tablet? As a tablet owner, I can say my tablet experience is that of consumption, exactly the way my smartphone is, save for making phone calls. A tablet (iPad in your case being the Apple fanboy you seem to be based on this thread) is a form factor pretty much catered towards consumption. So, I am, and I'm sure others are too, curious as to what you do differently with this kind of device.

I agree with the original post you quoted, the iPad is really just a big iPhone, but with slightly less functionality since it doesn't natively make phone calls.
