I like ePubs better for reading than PDF, so I thank you for the information about another conversion app. I'll keep an eye on it and consider it when I next need a converter.
However, there are a few factual errors in your post that I would like to mention.
There are a multitude of iPad apps that read PDF, including Apple's iBooks (its native book reader). PDF support is system wide, with a built in rendering engine that makes PDF display one of the most common features of any reading or file management app.
iTunes handles pdf imports exactly the same way it does ePub. There is no difference at all. You plug in your device, go to the application menu, pick your app, and choose the files you want on the iPad. Sync. iTunes displays PDF synced with iBooks exactly the same way that it does ePub, under Books in the Library section.
There is one key difference between iTunes' handling of ePub and PDF files. If you double click on a PDF, it gets displayed. ePub files do not.
Note: The ability to display pdf files in iTunes was tested on an iMac. I don't know if it will do so on a Windows computer.
I suggest these easy steps to convert PDF file for iPad. You need to install caliber application, add your PDF and convert to E-pub. Add books into iTunes. Now click on convert E-books and select convert individually.
I believe you mean Calibre. I've used it, and it works well.
If you have a Mac, Stanza is another good solutions.
I use Stanza because it gives me access to my older eReader.com library of books, DRM and all. Ahh, the good old days and the Palm TX.

Yes, they work together. That is another reason I use it. To be more accurate, that is why I use it when iBooks or Kindle don't work. It's my backup for all the oddball stuff.

Nice option and link, Tim. (stolen)
Calibre is another option. It has a lot more features, but it's not as easy to use as Tim's suggestion. But if you find yourself with more formats to convert than PDF, it will handle just about anything you can throw at it; as long as the book is not copy protected, of course.
There is no reason why you have to convert PDF to ePub to read them in iBooks. But reading PDF files is a second rate experience. If the PDF is almost all text, like a normal book, it's well worth the time to convert it. You'll get dictionary lookup, highlight and notes, two page view, resizable fonts, and more by converting it to ePub.
Some pdf books are just scanned pages though, all image, or magazine style with lots of images per page. Best to leave those as pdf files. They won't reformat into an ePub gracefully.
The iPad1 and the iPad2 both support PDF in the iPad's native iBooks app. There's no need to convert them to ePub.
