    I would stick with both android or both iOS. the ecosystem is important.
    Gnexus is a good phone but Nexus 4 is way better.
    A friend of mine who is an apple guy Bought a Nexus 4 today and he is selling his iPhone 5

    I think it makes more sense overall to have all of your devices on the same system, just for the sake of interoperability. If you have a Nexus 7 and a iPhone, that means you'll need to duplicate your app purchases, and you'll have to manage each device using a separate system (Google vs iTunes).

    I bought an N7 when the 32GB came out, and I already had an iPhone 4.

    I think I'll trade in my iPhone for an Android phone some day, but I'm not sure that I will. IOS is a bit boring, but a lot of that is born in the stability.

    I still think iTunes works far better than Google Play, and that has nothing to do with the amount of material available. It's just a better system. At the very least - syncing my phone (or tablet if I had one) to my local computer is built in. No need to root anything or jump through any hoops to get there. Full backups of my system, up to and including all desktop layouts, application data, etc is built in and automatic (and configurable). That could well be the feature that keeps me in IOS for the long haul.

    All that said - I'm still lovin the N7.

    But if you are coming from iPhone be sure to buy lots of chargers, you're going to need them. I still love my gnex but battery life has been the only negative.

    Personally I would never try to limit myself to one OS, but that's because it fits my needs the best.

    If you enjoy your iphone than definitely hold on to it for now. Looking for the same experience as your tablet then exchange for the Nexus.
