I'm not going to try to persuade you either direction, just answer any questions you have about either device. I've put both through the entire range if motions and have pretty much pushed both to their limits.
In all honesty they both have their strengths and their weaknesses.
I've gotten an app called Spare Parts on my Tab that makes any Android app render correctly on Honeycomb so the Honeycomb specific apps selection has multiplied exponentially.
Ios5 on the ipad will open a new world of possibilities once released as well should you decide that route.
The gps on both is very accurate and fast from the box but on the Tab an app called GPS Essentials speeds the lock time to about 10 seconds at most, even inside. Star Walk on the ipad is by far the best sky gazing app on either platform. I don't mind waiting an extra 20 seconds to get a lock if it means a far superior app that I use gps for most of the time anyway.
The ipad 3g has both cdma and a gsm version so depending on who has the better signal, verizon or att, would be the way to go. The att version can be pay go data or no data at all (what I did) but I'm not sure how the verizon one works in that regard.
Hope that helps
