The ipad is much better. Steve jobs is the man! Android devices aren't bad either..but the ipad is way ahead. Thanks!
According to me Ipad consists of Iphone technology which doesn't have the call facility through GSM. But Android has the best chances to work as per your choices and can either be used for calls or sms and Internet purposes as well. Rather Ipad can also be used for sms, internet and for other purposes but it can't make any call through GSM technology. Samsung ITAB is the best devices for this purpose.
It depends on the cost. In case of android tablets you have choice from $50 to hundreds of dollars. But ipad is available only at a high price. But Galaxy Tab is comparable with iPad
I have answered this question a few times and honestly, never mind talking about it. I have owned both an iPad as well as an Android tablet. I have also had an iPod Touch and own a Samsung Droid Charge cell phone.
Both platforms are extremely robust and offer a wide variety of features. I do have a personal preference though which is what I believe it boils down to.
In the end, I chose the Android tablet (Asus Transformer TF101) because the iPad was limited as to what it could do for me in the technology field for work. I do alot of Windows system administration for work and the iPad does not offer the tools that I need to to my work remotely while the Android tablet does. Another reason that I chose the Android tablet is because of Adobe Flash Player support. Our helpdesk system at work has components built on Flash and I simply could not use it on the iPad. On the Android platform it is flawless and I get the same experience that I get on my Windows desktop system. It has been announced however, that Flash support will no longer be persued after the gelease of Icecream Sandwich (next Android version) as HTML5 will replace this.
This is not to say that the iPad is not a great device. It does alot of great things, is designed and built well. It just depends on what you want to use it for.
I have written a Hub that discusses the differences and similarities between the two platforms and a list of pros and cons.
Hope this helps!!!
