Dear Durga, basically, the iPod is an mp4 player. Almost like a cell phone (unless it's the iPhone), it is designed to be an on-the-go wenue for all of your music and videos. On the other hand, the iPad is a tablet - a whole different type of electronic. Tablets are just like netbooks - basically, laptops, but more portable and practical. The iPad is more like a big touch-screen netbook or laptop that you can take around. Better internet, larger computing capabilities, and (we're not fully sure yet on it's full specs) can maybe take compact disks, and transfer large files, etc. So the iPod is an entertainment device - for listening, watching, having fun, and the iPad is a tablet that can be used for many things from business to reading newspapers in full. And yes, the iPad is at least five times as big as the iPod.

It amazes me how Apple still manages to create similar yet amazing devices and compete with other technology giants. IPod touch and the iPad are two classic examples that show the devices have different names but are quite similar in functionality. The only notable difference between the gadgets is their shape as well as intended purpose. For starters, the iPad was designed to cater for browsing and movie viewing, as well as other similar activities. In contrast, the iPod touch acts like a media player for users on the go. Another significant difference between the two gadgets is their shape and size. Unlike the iPod Touch, the iPad offers a sizable viewing area, which means you can watch your favorite movies with friends. Additionally, you can check mail and browse simultaneously without the need to zoom every now and then. What makes the iPod touch a must-have for technophobes is portability as you can easily slip it into your jacket pocket. In other words, you can browse on the go without worrying it will fall. The best feature so far with an iPad is the 3G connectivity even when you are not within your typical hangouts that have Wi-Fi range. However, the iPod touch does not have this option which means you can’t browse unless you are near a Wi-Fi hotspot. The iPad is also better than the iPod touch when it comes to performance as it allows multitasking. The IOS4 processor on the iPad is more reliable than the single processor present on the iPod touch. 1. The iPad acts as a media player on the go. 2. The iPod touch is pocket friendly and can easily fit in your jacket pocket. This means you can browse on the go without worrying it will fall. 3. The iPad has better 3G connectivity than the iPod Touch. 4. The iPad is more reliable since it has dual-core processor

The iPad and the iPod are both manufactured by Apple. The iPad is also known as Apple Tablet that is considered a hybrid of iPod touch and Apple notebook. The company describes the product as “magical and revolutionary”. This device can be used for web browsing, ebook reading and runs almost 140, 000 apps. The targeted audience for iPad are the consumers already using iTouch and iPhone and familiar with the touch-screen technology. iPods are great Apple devices used mainly for playing and storing music, videos, photos and more and come in four different models, iPod Shuffle, Nano, Classic, and iPod Touch. The latest model, iPod Touch is also a great pocket computer and can be used to send email, surf the web and play games.

ipad is a tablet which has good screen, fast processor, superfast wifi and 3g, etc. and ipod is a music and video player which can only play videos, songs, surf net and play games.

Well Durga, There is a huge differnece between the two. iPod was initially launched as just a simple music player but now it has many amazing features like Wi-Fi so that you can surf net while listening to Music etc. SO Basically its a Music cum Video Player with amazing Graphics and all. Where as iPad is like a computer, tough its not like a full fledged computer. You can access your mails, surf net over it, Also click photos, play games and stuff. So its more like a Laptop that you can carry with you with ease. now, we can say that iPod is a Music Player and iPad is like a Portable Computing Device.

The REAL difference betwwen a iPad and a iPod touch is that a iPod does not have usb, but neither of them have a gps or camera. Also all the garbage being said about how heavy the iPad is is all wrong because it is about the sameweight as a magazine.

i-pad means its a computer like device in our hands with full touchscreen and we can even browse and access many applications but in an i-pod we can only listen songs and in some of them we can take videos or pics this is the main difference
