HTC Flyer, Blackberry Playbook, or HP Touchpad to go along with either a Torch, HTC Sensation or Motorola Atrix?
If you do get the Torch, then you should definitely consider the Playbook to go with it. Don't believe the haters: if you have a Blackberry, the Playbook is awesome! The size is great, it's fast, runs Flash beautifully, relies on your phone's data plan (big money saver here), and is absolutely great at doing work through it's native MSOffice Apps. In fact, I like mine so much that it makes me more likely to buy another Blackberry when my contract is up, even though I'm only moderately happy with my phone.

The issue, though, isn't that it's difficult to set up an email account; it's just that it doesn't have a native email app, and so you have to use the browser. (Technically, it does have one, but it only works when paired with a Blackberry phone.)
The touchpad reminds many of the original Pre, lots of potentential, a bit buggy, suspect hardware. Its a good option though, if you can deal with a lack of developer support.
I wouldn't get a Flyer until they come out with honeycomb, though the hardware looks nice. I don't know what HTC is doing with the pen it's not well intagrated with the software.
The iPad 2, Eee Pad Transformer and the Galaxy Tab 10.1 are all worth consitering. I'm useing the Eee Pad right now and love it.
The Flyers a good tablet, I just think that Honeymoon should be on all top tier Android tablets by this point.
I'd also recommend the Sensation for a phone. It's a good looking device with killer guts and HTC does a good job with Sense.
Personally I would go with the Sensation, but I've always had a soft spot for HTC phones.
I'm not sure about the tablet though.. I'm trying to decide between the same 3 myself. The flyer will have all the apps you want and plenty of ecosystem support given that android is so popular. But the playbook and touchpad will give you (in my opinion) a slicker experience as far as the OS goes. You don't realize how great that whole card metaphor for multitasking is until you use it full time. If you're deciding between those two, then it's mostly up to the size you want.
