The title says it all. What do you think would be the best. Migrate to 7.1 from 7.0 or wait for the next major release ?

7.5 is going to build on the x64 infrastructure that you're putting in place for 7.1.  So you're starting from scratch for either migration.

That said, 7.5 is going to support SQL 2012.  7.5 is also slated to support clients over the Internet.  Are these things important to your company? 

However, the 7.5 beta just went live you'll be waiting several more months for the actual release.

How many migrations/upgrades can you and your company tolerate over the next x months?

it's a relatively stable product.

When 7.5 is released it should then be a relatively simple upgrade.

If you already have a 7.0 enviroment running I don't see why not upgrading to 7.1. An stable 7.5 release is several months away so it could be frustrating waiting.
