I think having both is a good decision. I am a former iphone owner who left apple because of he arrogance of the company. I didnt like them not letting me send mms without jailbraken my phone(which i did). I just got tired of every update coming out being about them making it easier for me to give them my money. Now i understand its a business and i respect that. But i feel that it should be a win win. I felt like apple wasnt doing enough free for all the things they were charging for. But i have used the ipad every time i go to the mall and i will say its a cool gadget. Now its not a full computer, but how often on my full computer do i even fully compute vs internet use? Not much. And a i have a few computers. If my laptop breaksdown on me instead of buying another i would consider an ipad. But if money is not an issue and you can have both EVO and ipad then you are in good shape. I use my phone to look things up and check a few sites throughout the day. And for that i dont think their is a better phone than evo. 4.3 inches is the perfect size. New iphone looks nice. But 3.5 inches is just too small. And neither is worth really playing games on. App store may be better on apple. But how much time are you really going to spend playing a 3.5 inch video game when your fingers take up much of the screen. I dont get it.
