He's not the only one who has had doubts about how necessary the iPad is:
"At first I thought, this is not for me. I have the iPhone for mobility and a computer for my computer life. With the iPhone there are certain things it just doesn't do well, mostly in browsing. It's horrible to navigate a map on an iPhone because of the screen size."
On the two iPads he's buying, one will be the Wi-Fi model, the other a 3G model, presumably for the same reason he carries two iPhones:
"If the battery runs down on the first one, I can use the other. And if I'm talking on one, I can use the other one to look something up. You would not believe how much use I get out of that"
