To me the differences are significant.
EVDO generally will give you about 300 to 700 Kps download speed, whereas EDGE will only give you about 75 to 150 Kps.

For short, text email or IM, EDGE will suffice. But if you want to use your device to surf the web, for instance, EVDO will make a huge difference.
