Tablet Purchase Overview

Are you in the market for a tablet, but wonder whether you should buy an iPad or an Android based tablet?  With both being excellent platforms, it comes down to what you want in a tablet. 

The iPhone/iPad ecosystem is a huge strength for the iPad. This includes the App Store, which has over 800,000 apps, with 300,000 designed specifically for the iPad and the rest capable of running in compatibility modes.  Android has a huge amount of apps too but with its less stringent filtering system theres a lot of rubbish in the app store.  The iPad also tends to be more stable and easier to use than Android tablets. Apple approves each app individually, ensuring that it (mostly) does what it claims it will do an the worst of the bugs are eliminated.

The trade off in being more stable and easier to use is having less customization than Android tablets.  The iPad also lacks the ability to expand its storage through flash drives, which means when you run out of storage space, you are really out of space.  The iPad is also more expensive than Android.   Careful of the cheapie Android tablets though – they run very slow and the screens aren’t very responsive.  The biggest strength of the Android is the vast array of devices from which to choose and the amount you can customize your tablet once you make your purchase.
