[nobe-l] using ipad as a notetaker

I have a Braillenote apex that has a ghost dot on one of the 
cells.  Since the unit is four or five years old, I don't think I 
want to put the money into fixing it right now since I can't 
really use it for work.  I have an ipad with a Focus 14 blue 
Braille display and have been strongly urged to get an iphone 
which I plan to do eventually.  Therefore, my name is whether you 
think an ipad, iphone, or both used with a Braille display would 
be a sufficient replacement for the apex.  As I said, I don't use 
it for work; I mainly use it for email, web browsing, keeping 
track of contact information, etc.  I have some files on it as 
well, but they are not absolutely necessary.  Your thoughts would 
be greatly appreciated.  Also, do you think that in the long 
term, 14 cells of Braille is enough for reading email or any 
other task I choose to do or should I consider investing in a 
slightly larger display? I look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you,
Kelsey Nicolay
