They are essentially the same concept the differences being the size of the viewing area, the speed of the processor (1 GHz for the iPad and 800 MHz for the Touch) and the ability to access 3G as well as Wi-Fi.
But the usability is where they differ the most. Yes you can put the Touch in your pocket, but the screen size hampers most real-life uses. The iPad of course is much larger and thus lends itself to many more possible uses such as watching videos, reading magazines and books and web surfing, but of course it is pretty big to carry around unless you have a purse, brief case or some other type of carrier.
