i will go for Android tablets. simply because Android is the best and its the trend. And android applications (which can be downloaded from android market) are just amazing.

i guess for me it's more a choice of platform. specs-wise, both are similar in most areas. the only difference is the platforms that the tablets are based on. it's more like a android vs iOS thing to me. personally, i own an iPad and don't think i'd change anytime soon. the iOS is so much more intuitive and user-friendly. also, android is so open that it's possible to download a virus, even from the official android market. so for the time being, i'd stick with iOS until the security issues with android are addressed.

Obviously the Ipad due to its large application base and support even though its a big costly .

I'm spoilt for choices between the two.. haha :D Actually i'm not too fascinated by tablets because they are just for show, and everything looks bigger in them, that's all. I've tried all kinds of tablets whenever i'm at the airport, waiting for my flight. But there's one app i like in tablets, whereby we are able to create and edit excel, words documents. That's what i needed badly but not available on smart phones
