In conclusion, The iPod touch is built as a music player and to be portable. The iPad is obviously built to surf the internet and play with all the apps.
The iPad has a much bigger screen making it easier to see what you are doing, runs smoother because it is much more powerful, better graphics and the multi touch technology is far superior. The iPad also has a vast selection of books to choose from. This makes it great for travellers because carrying loads of books weighs a lot compared to an iPad which weighs just 1.5 pounds.
I think the iPad does what the iPod touch does but better however the iPod touch is much smaller and easier to carry. It is very hard to compare the iPad to anything else because it is the step between an iPod touch and a laptop. I can not say one is better than the other because they have different purposes. Just choose the right one according to your needs.
